    What would you all recommend for a 8'-12' privacy hedge? Must be deer resistant, suitable for zone 5 and can be formed into a nice manicured hedge.

    flowering quince, hollies, privet, scarlet firethorn, hybrid yew, arborvite, viburnum. im not to familiar with zone 5 so you might want to double check some of those.

    also i just spit out every plant that i would use as a hedge, im not sure how deer resistant they are. but with enough love most of them will hedge up
