Deer browsing has practically denuded the lower half of these arborvitae plants.
Although browsing deer are charming to watch, they can cause extensive damage by feeding on plants and rubbing antlers against trees. In urban areas, home landscapes may become the major source of food. Deer can pose a serious aesthetic and economic threat. Damage is most commonly noticed in spring on new, succulent growth.
The best way to avoid this problem is to plant “deer resistant” plant varieties in the landscape. Where this isn’t possible or practical we can help with our NoBrowse program by applying a “natural repellent” to susceptible plants making them less appetizing to deer in the neighborhood.
