Buxus (Boxwood) Celtis (Hackberry) Cotoneaster Daphne Fraxinus (Ash) ) Picea (Spruce) Quercus (Oak) Rhus (Sumac) Ribes (Currant) Syringa (Lilac) Viburnum (Cranberry) )

Thin barked trees are generally favorites of rabbits. These include Willows, Poplar, & Apples. Ash and Maples are susceptible until they get past the sapling stage. Oaks are usually ignored completely. As for evergreens, pines are usually preferred over spruce and fir.
