Please help me identify the animal that is gnawing horizontal rings on the branches of my styrax tree. what animal is doing this and how can I prevent this damage?

    good that you mentioned styrax
    a bird expert says because styrax has such thin bark, that explains why the holes are so close

    Oops, scratch the ‘possum’ post below. Those are not N. American species and in the different genus. So sorry for the mixed up.

    I don’t know what kind of animal. But with horizon pattern here, I suggest you check out the included link for information of possum chew marks and see if you have a match (?). Click on images to enlarge. If it’s animal, a tree guard could help. Best wishes!
