The fruit trees are doing great this year





Most are pretty consistent, bearing fruit every year

Tree orchards that include fruit and chestnuts planted in our plots add an element of attraction usually not found on property next door.





It takes a few years but once they start bearing fruit deer will quickly adapt and create new habits that help make harvest much easier

trees look great---nice fruit and very healthy. Why I didn't start fruit trees when I purchased my land 10 years ago I will never know but I started a year ago and in a few years I should start seeing some good fruit crops with my apples and pears.

I do have quite a few persimmons and have been doing a lot of grafting on my persimmons to get more fruiting trees.

thanks for posting
