Almost everything we plant we look if it's deer resistant. NEighbor keeps loosing apple trees to them. I gave up and grow pears. Deer won't eat pear bark. They will eat the pears. Some seed and nursery companies place codes next to items for deer resistance. From the ones without the code it's pretty clear we are feeding them nicer than nature could ever do.There's an entire not-so-niche thing here that involves landscaping with plants deer don't like to eat.
Thousands of them right in town.
I have thus far resisted temptation.
