Over a period of two weeks our three year old Aucuba has been reduced to a few woody stalks. An unknown creature has removed all of the greener stems and foliage. There are no chewed stems near the plant, so they have either been consumed or taken away. There were a few leaves on the ground, so the stems seem to be the main attraction. There were also a few cream coloured berries on the plant before it was destroyed. Interestingly, two larger Aucuba Picturata shrubs nearby are untouched and there is no sign of unusual damage to any other shrubs. Any idea how we can identify the mysterious assailant? We have never seen a deer in the area. Could it be a raccoon?
