Need Conifers in deciduous Forest
I have a nice mix of deciduous trees in my woods: Maple, ash, hickory, basswood, birch, aspen, a few oaks. To add variety, winter color, and wildlife cover, I would like to begin planting Conifer seedlings.
The canopy is fairly full, and the soil is sand/loam/clay. The woods moisture level is medium, with a small runoff swamp to one side.
What would be some good choices for conifer plantings that would grow well in shade and survive animal browsing?
