The Q&A Archives: What's the best tree?

Question: I live in a zone 5 area in the pocono mts.PA. I have deers, rabbits, beavers and gophers. I am also on a lakefront. I want to buy trees as dividers that will sustain the snow and wind and plant flowers/shrubs that will not be eaten. Can I plant laurels? Could you suggest some trees that would be appropriate as well as some flowers? Thanks

Answer: I found an excellent publication from Penn State with all kinds of plants suitable for your landscape. http://pike.extension.psu.edu/Horticulture/DeerResistantPlan...

You can download and print a copy for reference.

Best wishes with your landscape!
