Thank you Woodland Mermaid for the info about the Carolina Silverbell. You are so right about the damage caused by Bucks rubbing their antlers against small saplings, I had noticed one of our sarvisberry bent down and showing a large wound on it's cambium, down to the bare dead wood. Now I know it wasn't me mowing...

We have found that our Mimosa (aka Silk Tree aka Albizia) tree has lovely pink flowers in summer that attracts hummingbirds but the deer have never touched it. ... touch wood.

My daughter and her husband relocated from Sacramento to Vermont and I am here visiting with 4 feet of snow in their yard. Each house in the area has a minimum is 2 acres. Well, the deer have come right up to the house and have destroyed the evergreens. We need suggestions on what to plant in the Spring that is deer resistant in ski country.
