How to Plant Your Deer Orchard
Included in this starter package:
Chinese Chestnuts – 3x
Not only do deer love Chinese chestnuts, but you will find them tasty as well. They can be eaten roasted, boiled, or sautéed. A prickly 2–3½” seed husk encloses 1-4 nuts and will yield a ripened nut crop from mid to late September all the way through October.
Shumard Oak – 2x
Buy and put Shumard Oak Trees on your land to attract deer; they love oak trees, and the cover and feed provided.
American Persimmon – 4x
This tree is adaptable to a diverse array of habitats, from the baking hot, dry limestone “Hill Country” of central Texas to moist floodplain margins in central Florida, while also enduring the cold winters in the northern extent of its range from Iowa to southern New England. Over time it will produce shoots from the roots, forming a colony of trunks that provide valuable cover for wildlife. The orange fruit, which can range up to the size of a small plum, begin ripening in fall and are often retained on the tree after leaf drop well into December in southern latitudes.
Strawberry Bush – 3x
Strawberry bushes are very huge draws for deer. Planting strawberries on your property for deer is a great strategy. Get the best at Wildtree.
