Deer have stripped all the leaves off my evergreen and my Nellie Stevens holly. Will they grow back, or should I cut them down? Some evergreen species tolerate deer "pruning" well and put out new growth in spring, although lower branches won't bounce back as fast as upper branches would. Yew, arborvitae, hemlock and many junipers fall in this category. You'll need to prevent future winter stripping, however, because the evergreen can't recover when this happens repeatedly.

The medical system that provides care to Maryland's veterans signed a one-year contract with Evergreen Health Care in Baltimore to offer primary health services to new patients, federal and co-op officials said Thursday. The $485,000 contract aims to cut down on wait times that had become some of the worst in the nation. A June audit found Central Maryland's veterans were waiting an average of 80 days to see a primary-care doctor for an initial visit, the fourth longest wait in the nation.

Four weeks since it began selling health insurance on the state's new marketplace for the uninsured, Evergreen Health Cooperative Inc. has signed up only five people. That's a long way from the nonprofit health insurance provider's first-year goal of 15,000 people, so Evergreen is already shifting focus. Technical problems making it difficult for people to register for the state exchange culminated last week for Evergreen when its plans disappeared from the exchange offerings.

Nobody seems to know how the tiny wooded enclave off Cold Spring Lane called Evergreen got its name.It might have come from one of the old estates with similar titles on either side, or perhaps it was the large pines interspersed among the mature trees that distinguish its rolling topography. For whatever reason, the neighborhood was designated Evergreen about 1877, when the first real development occurred.Many visitors think the neighborhood is part of Roland Park, but in fact Evergreen predates the larger and better-known neighborhood, for which it became a staging and service area.

When the word came that Johns Hopkins University had pumped a staggering $4.3 million into Evergreen, the old Garrett estate in the 4500 block of N. Charles St., there seemed some cause for worry.Could this very demanding house survive a restoration and still be the lived-in museum it has been since the death of its owners?But this week, after a tour of Evergreen, it is apparent that the house indeed came out all right. The familiar cracks in the 1880s mosaic tile floors still are there. The vintage parchment lamp shades are a little brown around the edges and slightly crooked.

What: Studio tours, sculpture exhibitions and live theater Where: 4545 N. Charles St. When: 5 p.m. today Why: Because the mansion will extend its hours this evening so that visitors can tour the Sculpture at Evergreen exhibit and visit the studio of artist-in-residence, photographer Mehmet Dogu. If you're of a more sedentary persuasion, then just bring a picnic and simply relax on the grounds while the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival rehearses its production of The Tempest. The practice run is scheduled to begin around 7 p.m. and admission is free.

Q. I'm seeing a fair bit of browning of the leaves of evergreen shrubs and trees such as boxwood, Leyland cypress and hollies, around my yard. I know that very cold winters can burn evergreen leaves, but I thought we had a mild winter. Are insects and diseases the culprits? A. We had sufficiently cold temperatures and wind to produce winter burn symptoms. Evergreen plants that are stressed going into the winter -- from drought, pest damage, site and soil problems, etc.-- are more susceptible to cold weather injury.

Among the many enticing concerts vying for your attention this weekend, here are two to consider. Tomorrow, the Santa Fe Guitar Quartet will bring its collective talents to Baltimore in a program that ranges from J. S. Bach and Bela Bartok to Isaac Albeniz and Astor Piazzolla. Named for the city in Argentina, the ensemble began making a name for itself in 1989 by combining classical repertoire with both classical and folk music of Latin America. There has been a particular emphasis on the tango-based works by the late Piazzolla, whose vibrant scores have helped bring the dance form back to the fore.

In addition to fresh-cut trees, some farms offer baling, wreaths and greens.

Most of the folks are in a pretty good mood, that's for sure. " Thomas Tree Farms actually opened the weekend before Thanksgiving, Thomas said, and he had quite a few families come to get their tree.

The federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was intended to extend health insurance coverage to 32 million of the roughly 50 million Americans who currently lack it. Yet even after the law fully goes into effect in 2014, millions of Americans will still be hard-pressed to pay the premiums charged by traditional for-profit health insurance companies. If they are to benefit from the law, many of them will have to seek lower-cost alternatives to the for-profit insurers. Plans for new kinds of nonprofit health cooperatives, which provide members equivalent care at lower cost, are already on the drawing boards in about two dozen states, including Maryland, which recently received a $65 million federal loan to fund the establishment of the state's first non-profit health cooperative.
