PLANT Your Tree
In this section, you will finish your path to growing edible trees by planting them at your site. Acquire the right type, number and size of trees to meet your goals and conditions at the site. Take the mature sizes of the trees into account when determining tree spacing and water supplies. Based on your water resources strategy and tree planting plan, install the watering system and dig planting holes. Carefully place the trees into the holes, backfill with dirt and water the trees. Get them off to a good start by applying mulch and weeding in the area around them. Record information about the type, date and care needed for your benefit and for those who may be stewarding the trees in the future. Click the links below to learn more.
CAUTION: Never eat anything that is not properly identified. It is your responsibility to ensure that all fruits, nuts, seeds, pods and other edible products of trees and shrubs are correctly identified and safe to eat before eating them or serving them to others.
