Shrub and Tree Protection from Deer and Wildlife

Many trees and shrubs are harmed each year by populations of deer roaming throughout the countryside. They will rub their antlers and backs against trees for relief. The impact can be devastating and in some cases, kill trees and shrubs. Roaming from one place to another affects plants and the surrounding areas. A large bevy of deer can leave a path of destruction behind them.

The good news, their practices are used to keep down the population of deer but can be expensive. These methods are normally used by gardeners, nursery owners, and in orchards that are home to valuable vegetation. Widespread use is restricted to conservative plantings. Effective methods include the following:

• Some fencing
• Individual tree protection
• Natural regeneration
• Repellents

Damage Prevention And Reduction Fencing

These fences have to enclose the entire area of the trees or plants and prevent deer from getting in. In general, they are more expensive than your average fencing for keeping domestic animals like horses enclosed.

Fences that are well-designed, installed properly, and maintained on a regular basis will be an effective product. Keep in mind, that fences are susceptible to damage from animals, machinery, and outdoor elements. Less expensive shorter fencing might work well during the growing season when the presence of the deer population is low.

In this article, we will go over the most popular methods and devices used to stop deer in their tracks.


The different kinds of fences can vary but each has its advantages, disadvantages, and costs. Depending on the type of fence, maintenance can range from daily to once in a while. The lifetime of a fence can vary from a few years to 20 years.

About Plant Barriers

These are individual barriers that are placed around each plant to protect them from different wildlife including deer. Barriers include:

• Tree tubes
• Wire mesh
• Spiral wraps
• Tree shelters
• Drain tile
• Paper tree wraps
• Snow fences

Shorter barriers allow plants to grow out of the top. As long as the barriers are 5 to 6 feet in height, the plants will be able to outgrow the reach of deer.


A variety of repellents are available on the market. Many commercial repellents use odor or taste to drive off deer and other animals. There are commercial repellents that work best during the growing season but might have mixed results during the winter months or after heavy rainfall.

A repellent's effectiveness could be reduced when food is in short supply. Deer are known to eat whatever is available in order to survive.

Natural Regeneration

In areas that have large numbers of deer, the only affordable approach is managing natural regeneration.

On various riparian sites, natural regeneration produces over 10,000 seeds per acre during the first year. The good news, deer will be attracted to new seeds but after a few years the growth of the plants will shoot up beyond the height of deer.

Tree Sprouting

Tree Seedling Sprouting

Note – Riparian zones are lands that run along the edges of rivers, lakes, streams, or other bodies of water. A good source of riparian species must be nearby and soil preparation must be done in a timely manner for successful reforestation. Riparian zones usually require weed control because the areas are quite weedy before tree crowns develop and shade the weeds. Costs are incurred by site preparation and weed control.

Care & Management Of Trees

Along with the deer, invasive sod-forming grasses can have a negative effect on the success of fruit producing trees.

Animal Control

Hunting is a method often used to reduce damage to trees and shrubs focusing on the intensity of the deer population. When damage happens in urban areas, local ordinances might restrict the level of hunting allowed. Some reports have shown that hunting, in combination with other practices, might reduce the damage caused by animals.

Food Interception

Many establishments, including nurseries, are using food sources to lure animals away from plants that need protection. Many unharvested grain plots are situated away from plants that need protection.

Reports have shown there is very little success in trying to establish perennial trees and shrubs as interceptor plots. Establishing these plots can be very difficult especially when surrounded by animals that are on a damaging spree. In the long run, there are more negative results than positive results. Keep in mind, the expense and labor costs can be in the thousands each year. Weed seeds can spread if screenings are used. Diseases could spread among the deer population as well as among livestock. Also, more deer might show up in the area making the problem worse. If deer are well-fed, it could increase the population of newborn fawns. Interception feeding should only be a temporary answer for 1 to 2 months and a last resort for protecting trees and shrubs.

Buck Rub Damage

Many trees can be damaged by buck back rubs and if it happens many times, the tree could die. During a serious back rub, bucks could damage several trees at once. There are certain species of trees that bucks are attracted to including Scots Pine, Rocky Mountain junipers, Eastern red cedars, poplars, and Caragana. Some buck rubbing can be reduced using animal control procedures.

A study from south-central Minnesota showed that red oaks planted with fabric mats to stop weed growth increased damage from deer more than trees without mats. That said, this could be caused by a tree's visibility or is easier to access without the interference of weedy vegetation.
