I haven't tried them. I considered using them in a road screen, but ultimately decided to use something that wasn't sterile (i.e., pines and spruces) so that they would still produce some food for birds and smaller wildlife species. I can't say how much deer may browse them, but from my reading online, it doesn't seem to be an issue except possibly in very high deer density (suburban?) areas.
I didn't consider them for cover plantings elsewhere just because they don't reputedly offer any real food value to wildlife, and most places I was/am planting I prefer pines as potential future turkey roost trees.
Everything I could find online at that time said that they do fine in Zone 6, so I don't see why they shouldn't do well here in PA. If you try them here, I'll be interested to see how they do for you!
