This Dec. 31, 2012 photo shows a deer pruned yew next to the foundation of a house in New Paltz, N.Y. Deer are ready to start pruning our trees and shrubs. Although not discriminating as to when or what they munch in terms of promoting plant health or aesthetics, in at least one situation deer can actually lend us a "hand" in pruning.
