I want to get trees from the following person:

Emerald Green Arborvitae (thuja) 6 feet tall (http://newjersey.craigslist.org/grd/2597332679.html - broken link)

I would need to buy 40 of them for him to deliver them to Greenwich, CT. I need about 15-20, is anyone interested in some more? His price is pretty good and he'll charge about 150-175$ for delivery which we can split.

..............you 100% correct...............it doesn't matter if you live in CT or MT (as I do)................the deer (in our case both WT & Mule) will "find them in short order" on your property and WILL destroy them! Unless you want to spend the money for a "deer proof fence around each one.".

Costco has them for about the same price right now. I saw them in the Milford store.

I have them in my yard and the deer have never touched them. I've seen them in other parts of this area and they're unscathed and not protected.

I had 4 of these along my driveway at my old house and 3 were destroyed by deer. I didn't like them at all anyway and was happy to tear 'em up.

In a place like Greenwich (especially backcountry), I wouldn't recommend them at all unless, as previously posted, you put fence made of woven wire around each one.

I've used a monthly spray for years that is a deer deterrent and has worked well for me. However, it has to be applied monthly during warmer weather because it wears off. For cooler months I usually apply it in late fall on a day when it's in the 50's, then cross my fingers for a similar day in January so I can spray again, then start up monthly again in March. It's a PITA to have to frequently spray, time-consuming and expensive, but it works if one really wants to have landscaping that deer love to eat.

It was a major plus when we bought our latest house when the owner told us all the shrubs were deer-resistant.

I'm closer to the coast, so the deer aren't as abundant.
