Someday this will be a double hedge or tunnel hedge.

It is still good weather for planting more trees – wet and not too cold. The seedlings where dug up in the spring and potted, so that the roots could develop during the summer and fall. They almost never have any trouble surviving the winter and getting rooted in time for the dry weather in spring and summer.

This year I’ve planted at least 50 trees. Many kinds of fruit and nuts, shade trees and wind breaks. The hedges have a mix of just about any large growing tree I can find. The more variety the better.
