I have a customer that asked me to give him an estamite on planting 60 Arborvitaes that are around 7 feet tall. They are all in a straight line on the top of a little hill. I will be renting a Toro Dingo with a auger bit for around $230.00 to dig the holes. My question is how long do you guys think that I will take with myself and one other person to dig the holes, put some soil amendment in, plant the trees, backfill the holes and stake them with two tree stakes. The only other thing that scares me about this is that I know that the deer will love the Arborvitae come late winter because his property backs up to some woods and he sees a 12 point buck back there a good bit. Is there anything else that grows in the 12 ft to 25 ft tall range that is deer tolerant. I was talking to a wholeseller today and he suggested the Green Giant Arborvitae and said that it grows about 25ft tall and about 8 ft wide. But I have done some reading on them and it looks like they get upwards of 40 to 50 ft tall. I know that it will actually be cheaper to go with a bigger growing specimen but it cant be more then 25 ft in mature height. Thanks for any suggestions.
