Green Giant arborvitae has more natural deer resistance than other types, but hungry deer will munch on most anything if the competition for food is high. Fencing off your arborvitae will provide the most protection; Ropel or Deer Away are popular deer repellants. Apply according to label directions. Reapplication will be necessary. Hope this helps!
