Planting trees

I’m jealous that you have soil so far down. When I planted mine I spent hours with a pick axe chipping away at rocks and other debris. My back is hurting just thinking about it. 

Your plants look awesome. They’re gonna love their new homes. 


Freaking awesome, @roadkill!  Thanks for posting it here!  This app is THE COOLEST PLACE for learning AND teaching how to be sure the next generation has the right information for caring for these special trees.  You musta been quite a sweaty site to see after all the digging 😱  LOL LOL I’d be unable to walk for days after that!  Love the recipe! 

Nice patch of trees. Your technique sounds a lot like the 'Ruth Stout' method.  They should grow very fast and strong 

@peteypyro well I got the hay usage from this group here I didn't know about the hole preparation that I do I never did read about her method.


Would be sweet to see the difference between similar sized trees. One with hay and one without!
