Landscape Damage from Deer
Are deer making your trees and shrubs the main course at their midnight buffet?
It does not take many visits to destroy valuable landscape plants. An adult deer consumes approximately six pounds of plant material daily! Additionally, during autumn, each buck damages hundreds of young trees with its antlers.
The best approach to deer management is a program that uses a combination of repellents, fencing and deer resistant plants. Effective repellents are available, but must be timed right. An arborist has access to some of the best deer repellent materials that can’t be purchased in your local garden center. Your arborist can help guide you in the application and timing of treatments to keep these unwanted visitors away.
