Ok folks.....it's time to get some trees in the ground.
I don't have but about 30-40 trees that are in 3-5gal pots.
As soon as I get these trees in the ground I'm going to fertilize
Some of the trees that are already planted the last few years.

The fertilizer really made them grow last year!

I'm looking forward to see another years growth on my trees!

Planted pear trees and a Japanese persimmon today.

I always rough the roots up a little so they will not be rootbound.

I always put a wire ring around the fruit trees to keep the deer from eating the tops
out of them. Deer can't pass up the new growth on the young fruit trees.
This pear tree is ready for spring other than mabe some mulch.

I'm really excited about this tree. I got it last june on clearance. It's huge!
I'm going to get a couple more dunstan trees for pollination.

I have 22 shumard oaks that I started from acorns in 3 gal pots
Is mostly what I have left to plant.
After that then I will fertilize some of my trees.
I never fertilize first year trees.

I put off making cages for my fruit trees long enough.
I finally got them around my fruit trees last weekend.
This is a couple pictures of the caged trees.

Yep...it's neat to think how it will look in a few years.
