How to Plant Your Deer Orchard
Included in this starter package:
Fuji Apple – 2x
The Fuji apple has become one of the more preferred varieties in the US for both humans and wildlife thanks to its attractive red color and its delicious, sweet taste. It is a relatively low chill apple that will perform well in USDA hardiness zones 4-9. It prefers full sun, which means it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight daily. This early harvest apple grows well in moist, well-drained soil, and is not particularly drought tolerant. The Fuji tree will typically produce apples within 3 to 5 years of planting.
Harvest this apple late in the season and pollinate with our Dorsett Golden or Ein Shemer. This is an old variety, originating in NY in the 1800’s.
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 – 3x
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.
