Question: I live in Kenai Alaska, what trees and plants does Home Depot carry that the moose won't eat. They seem to like everything...

I know that moose generally leave the following plants alone:
Columbine, Larkspur (Delphinium), Foxglove, Iris, Narcissus, Monarda (Bee Balm), Monkshood, Bishopsweed, Asiatic and Oriental Lilies, and Day Lilies.

Best wishes with your landscape!
