I just finished planting 200 trees I ordered last fall from the State. When I placed the order I requested delivery in March. Well March came and went without a delivery. A few phone calls later they showed up on April 9th. Started planting last Saturday and finished the last of them today. 50 Chinese Chestnuts, 50 Pawpaws, 50 Hazelnuts and 50 White Oaks. I checked on some of the first ones planted and they are starting to bud out. Next, I want to put a mulch ring or weed guard around as many as I can to aide in early growth and put cages around as many as possible to keep the deer from rubing them in the fall. I may look for tomato cages when they go on sale. The last trees I planted I caged with rebar mesh but building that many cages would likely break the bank and the cages do not need to be 5 feet tall. All in all I am very pleased in the quality of the trees I recieved and I was amazed at the roots on the chestnut trees.
