Planting Fruit Trees | Things To Consider And Avoid

Planting Fruit Trees | Things To Consider And Avoid

Planting fruit trees can be a huge waste of time and money if done incorrectly. Consulting forester Rob Haubry talks about the things you need to know and consider before buying and planting fruit trees – such as tree spacing, bare root seedlings vs. container trees, when to prune, and different species of trees that can help with overall pollination and ultimately the production of the trees.

    Is the 25’ apart meant for semi-dwarf trees, as well?

    You spraid glyphosate? You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Completely unnecessary and quite poisonous and its all going into your fruit.

    Are you planting fruit for human consumption or deer consumption?

    I found your video while researching how to start a homestead orchard. I was hoping to find out how to keep the deer out. I’m really unsure what size and spacing to plant trees too, figuring I’d need to fence the entire orchard to keep the deer out. But wider spacing would mean more fencing. I like the cages you built. I’ve seen people put drain tile around trunks. Would that work too?

    We have over 80 wooded acres in fenton Michigan. I’m looking to plant 20 fruit trees plus several small fruits. I could really use some good advice!

    Planting to shoot deer? Really?
