These are my white spruce I started. I took 4 sorted buckets of trees out already, and planted. Couldn't go any further since the ground was insulated. I've been doing this for about 5 years. This year was the first year I got hit hard by winter burn- lost about 80% of my trees.
This is the start of my hybrid poplars. I had around 300 total. I harvest my own cuttings and grow them for a year. I get about 4-5' of growth. I need this jump start otherwise the deer would never let the trees get any growth . I plant the cutting close to prevent think root growth. Sometimes these trees will have 6' of a roots 3/4" thick. I am still amazed by them.
This is about 20 square feet of acorn growth. I just layered my acorns thick and placed a layer of some straw from my calves over them. I had a screen over the top of them right after planting. Otherwise critters would have gotten to them. You can see all the acorns germinated. Gonna be a lot of oaks to plant next year.
