Native trees and shrubs provide valuable food and nesting opportunities for our local bird population. Some good options are…
Viburnums – Nannyberry and other viburnums provide energy-rich berries and nesting sites
Oaks – Oaks support the greatest number of butterfly and moths species which are an important food source for birds
Spicebush – This bush is popular with fall migrants. The berries are high in fat, providing food for wood thrush, eastern kingbird and others.
Serviceberry – One of the earliest flower and berry producing shrubs. The berries attract tanagers, waxwings, catbirds and more.
If deer get hungry enough they’ll eat just about anything, but below is a list of woody plants that have either proved less desirable to deer and/or are able to stand up to the pressures of deer. In general, deer will avoid plants that are aromatic or have fuzzy, sharp or leathery leaves.
Viburnums (such as Nannyberry)
Black Walnut trees are allelopathic, which means they can inhibit the growth of nearby plants. Juglone is the allelopathic chemical that is exuded from all parts of the walnut tree. Plants located beneath the canopy of walnut trees are most at risk because juglone from the roots and fallen leaves accumulates there. So what can you plant beneath your walnut trees? A list of juglone resistant trees and shrubs are listed below.
Red and White Oak
