This has been a busy spring filled with tree planting. I planted hundreds of fruit and nut trees, both in the nursery and in permanent locations. One of these plantings was the beginning of a permanent paddock system with hedgerows and useful shade trees. Each hedgerow has widely spaced hickory/pecan trees with basswood, willow, mulberry, and elderberry planted between. Some apple and pears will probably be added later in between the larger nut trees.
