Deer Repellent Treatment

Deer are a common problem for many local homeowners. The adult deer consumes about six pounds of plant material daily and browse a wide range of plantings, ornamental gardens, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and fruit trees just to name just a few. Deer also carry ticks.

Deer are creatures of habit that will establish themselves in your landscape. It’s therefore essential to have a strategy that will make your trees, shrubs and plantings unappealing and ultimately keep deer away. The photo show the destruction deer can have on your landscape. This is called deer browse, typical to see a plant devoured up to deer head height. That’s why we use deer repellent!
The most practical approach is to have your North Eastern Tree, Shrub, & Lawn Care arborist inspect your property and recommend a program that uses several different repellents based on the specific time of year and solutions best suited for your property.

Winter Protection from Deer

Cold temperatures, snow, ice, high winds and salt can harm your shrubs and trees over the winter through desiccation or drying out. When the ground freezes, plant roots are unable to take up water from the soil, so they quickly begin to use up all the water stored in their leaves and stems. This is particularly damaging to evergreen trees and shrubs that don’t protect themselves by dropping their leaves in winter.


Anti-desiccants are products that can be applied to evergreen trees and shrubs to help hold in moisture through the winter. However, the biggest wintertime threat to shrubs, ornamentals and young trees are deer.

As winter wears on, their primary food sources dwindle and deer will turn their attention to your shrubs, trees and plants, including arborvitae, hemlock, cypress, holly, juniper, laurels, pines, rhododendron, azaleas and particularly to evergreen trees. A hungry deer will find almost any plant palatable, so no plant is “deer proof.”
