Damage caused by game

Hares and roe deer can cause severe damage, especially in young vine plants, by gnawing on the stem bark and eating away the shoot tips. This is prevented by creosote-based agents (wood tar = mixture of phenols and phenol ethers), with which the vine trunks are coated. This can, however, lead to the so-called "wild browsing". See also under animals and vine enemies.
