From:Arlington, VA Region: Mid-Atlantic Topic: Trees Title: Pine trees for West Virginia Answered by: Nan Hampton
I have two acres in the Canaan Valley, West Va. and would like to plant pine trees. What type would you recommend that the deers won't eat and the cold climate won't kill.
There are seven species of pines native to West Virginia and all of them either occur in Tucker County or in a county adjacent to it. All pines are somewhat resistant to deer and all except the first two on the list are also named on deer resistant lists. All of these species can withstand cold temperatures that occur in West Virginia since they are native to the area, plus most of them also occur in states and provinces north of your state.
