For screening and privacy put our low priced, fast growing evergreens to work. As these trees grow they will add value to your property and in a few years will become a high return real estate investment.

DO YOU HAVE WHITE TAIL DEER PROBLEMS?
Trees and shrubs suffer in two ways from deer. Antler rubbing goes from late August until mid January. Feeding (eating) can occur at any time of year but seems especially bad from mid December until the first of May on many plants including White Pine.
A zero cost method that I have seen reduce damage to zero is as follows:
Take thin plastic grocery or supermarket carry out bags, cut vertically in half so they don't fill with rainwater, tying a half bag to each tree you wish to protect.
