June 14, 2018 – Do you have deer eating your plants? Even plants which are generally considered to be deer resistant can be browsed if the conditions are favorable. This Green Giant Arborvitae in Short Hills, NJ was eaten by deer and also had its trunk rubbed by young bucks in an attempt to remove the velvet from their horns. SavATree has many options to minimize the damage of deer browsing and to help protect you and your family from contracting Lyme disease from deer ticks.
