Wild life and pine trees

Asked January 11, 2017, 11:01 PM EST

I am looking to get some pine trees. I tried white pines but the deer ate them. I am thinking of getting norway spruce, fraser fir, or douglas fir. Will the deer eat these types of pine? Which one grows the fastest?

Westmoreland County Pennsylvania

You might want to check out a fact sheet created by Rutgers Extension. They have an extensive list of plants rated on their resistance to deer damage. Just keep in mind that no plant is deer proof. Pull up this list at https://njaes.rutgers.edu/deerresistance/ and see what your options you have with plant material.
