After reading an ad in a nursery catalog, a friend is interested in planting Washington Hawthorne as a buffer between his back yard and a greenway trail.
His major question is "Will deer eat or be otherwise attracted to Washington Hawthorne?
We have a major challenge with deer around here, so he is looking for something which will not be eaten or attract deer.
Thanks for your help.
I found this post that says deer generally don't eat Washington hawthorn - Crataegus phaenopyrum. It was the only site I found with that info when I searched at google. Deer are known to eat almost anything if food sources are scarce.
Here's some info about these trees.
Here's some lists of plants deer tend not to eat.
English hawthorn is listed on this site.
This site is out of Florida so it may not have all the trees listed in your area, but it contains helpful info on many trees.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
