New Trees

We needed replacement trees for the west side of the house along the pasture line and part of our road frontage north of the fenced riding ring.

Planting holes are dug, and the trees begin to find their new homes.  We had beautiful weather to tackle this important task.

We purchased nine-foot norway spruce trees.  They are very heavy, and it took some strong young men to "wrestle them into place.

The west side of the planting area is cleaned.  The rockhound on the bobcat tractor does a great job of gathering, and the human element rakes and smoothes the ground prior to finishing with mulch.
