Clearing and Planting - Winter through Spring 2012

posted Nov 3, 2012, 6:49 PM by dee r
During the winter and long into the Spring of 2012, we worked hard to cut and clear the area of untrimmed big trees up on the hill. It took a lot of weekends and hundreds of tractor pulled wagon loads of branches to clear the upper half of the hill for replanting. In late Spring, hundreds of 3-5 year old firs and balsams were planted throughout the farm. We would like to thank all the family members who came up to the tree farm and helped with this task. These newly planted, older trees should be ready in 5-8 years.
