i have an acre site in enniskerry very open i need suggestions of what time of trees i can plant to screen around the house and that are evergreen…i need hardy trees that will not be eaten by passing deer… i had planted 3 lovely mountain ash and all were eaten by deer…also the soil is very rocky and doesnt seem to contain a great amt of good soil? any suggestions greatly appreciated
Probably the best choice is pine, mixed with birch and hazel with some holly too. All native trees and easy to grow. Plant small … cheaper … and keep weeds down for the first five years.
