Hi! Late last summer I planted six 5 foot arborvitaes I bought at Home Depot for $34.98 each. I keep the receipts for a year because of their warranty. Sad to say, this winter the deer ate them down to nothing!

Use the deer off spray from the garden centers, it'll work. Our fencing in the back yard between us and the internal lot behind us is a huge row of Arborvitae, they were chomped to nothing when we moved in, but have come back 4 years later. Also, human hair, sour milk, anything that doesn't smell good will help.

I was actually at the depot yesterday and I saw that they had them out already. I think they were 4 or 5 ft and the price was about $40 if i remember. I was being pulled around by my 3 year old so I didn't get a closer look.....

I hear that they have ones that are deer resistant. Is this true?

There are some varieties out there that could be considered that, but they are not the ones that home depot sells. you would probably have to go to a local nursery and specifically ask if the carry, or could order some that are more resistant to deer.

I had someone deliver and install them for $60 each. They were between 6-8 feet tall! They are very picky, flimsy trees when first planted.. They were installed June 2008. I had a soaker hose on them in some fresh top soil with fertilizer in it. They turned brown late fall but I am happy to say, I'm happy with the purchase. They are thriving and expanding now. Here's a pic. I can get you his number if you want.

They look beautiful. A friend of mine works at a nursery, and can get them for me at $22/tree (they're very small though).

CT Here --> What town are you located in? I am interested in that contact information if that person is willing to install some trees at my home in Newtown, and in a very similar fashion to what you have pictured there.

Also, just for clarification, you mentioned they were delivered and planted for $60 each. Did that include the cost of the tree itself as well? If so, I'm very interested in this contact information.

Finally, do you know if he has the ability to transplant 4 other arbor vitae that I currently have in my yard, but need to have moved. These 4 are easily 10-12 feet tall at the moment.

On a side note: Very neat idea with those tiki's in the railing. ...and I take it your neighbors kids bouncing around on that trampoline was partial motivation for the new additions?
