Oh Deer!


For the last 3 or 4 days I've been saying to Dave, "I've gotta spray that cherry tree so the deer don't eat the leaves like they did last year." Well I didn't and this morning I walked out on the deck and noticed my poor little cherry tree....half eaten again. Waaaaaa!

Ooops! Well, if the poor little cherry tree can manage to grow a bit taller, it will be out of harms way...

Will they grow back?

What do you spray it with?

Rachel said...

I sprayed it with "Deer Off". It works the same as "Liquid Fence".

Tracy- Can it grow taller if it keeps getting chomped?

Priscilla- They do grow back, but it takes a while.

T- We talked today about buying a net for it...kinda like a hair net for a tree!

The Japanese beetles that will be out soon will be the next battle. They also love it.

I would think that it will still grow and survive as long as it still has leaves on some of the branches. Does it have any new branchy projections coming on it? I mean trees still survive in the woods where the deer must eat them quite regularly, right?
