    I've seen so many lists suggesting this and skipping that, contradictory information, etc. Does anyone know of a list somewhere that is extensive enough for you to consider it- The List?
    I'm planning out some plantings for hedging and shade trees and want to be really careful. Not only are trees expensive, but so are vet bills or lost stock.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Charleen, I'll go through them. You're right- seems each animal has certain issues, and I'm in the sort of person who wants to try out every breed out there!

    Another thing to consider is many lists are "regional" so your area may not be on all of them, which would explain differences in lists
