fruit treesfor deer?
I have no complaints with them. I was thinking about the stake more from now until they set with new roots not from the angle of 2 years in and having some top weight growing.
Do you do anything with the trees when you plant as far as pruning back? I had a few branches that were 1.5 feet off the ground I just cut off right away. Waste of energy growing so low to the ground. I did not cut back the main leader although I have seen it recommended.
My burnt ridge trees were runts to begin with in 2012 but now they are all around 8' and should begin bearing next year.
Here's my Dolgo on B118. Planted last year. Pic from this past weekend. We are in a frost pocket in the river bottoms and this is the earliest bloomer of the ones I've got planted. Not even 4' tall yet.
Best I could do as they made me change my order a month after I ordered, and I got permision to put 3 apples on a friends place where I took my bow buck this year. Tiny property but just the right spot for a tiny property.
I put a wolf, dolgo and whitney in 2 spots on my land and enterprise, liberty, wolf on his.
That's too bad lookin! I lost a Liberty this past winter due to not having window screen on and the mice or w/e girdling the trunk at the base. It's on the rest of my trees now!
I got enterprise, liberty, wolf river, whitney and dolgo crabs from Burnt Ridge in Washington.
