Do the deer eat the trees?
Since they are an evergreen and stay green year around, the deer can sometimes nibble on them in the winter. Some varieties are deer resistant like the Green Giant Arborvitae and Holly's. However, it's not their primary source for food, so they tend to only do it after deep snow falls. It generally is not an issue, however if it becomes an issue, Home Depot sells an oil based spray for under $20 that will deter the deer from eating your trees.
