Restoration of cedars following a deer eat feat

by Corinne

I have a couple of young cedars that were planted last fall. The deer have eaten all of the foliage on one side, almost from top to bottom. What are the chances of them restoring themselves in the spring?


From thewebmaster: I am a horticulturist. The cedars should put on new foliage, you just need to make sure you give them fertilizer with a high percentage of Nitrogen. Something like 21-0-0 or 25-3-10. The N will encourage foliage growth. This will work unless the deer ate so far down into the old inside growth that there aren't any buds left anymore that could break out.
