So I've planted. Here are pics on how the trees arrived, close up of one. Then I painted them to prevent sun burn. Then planted.

Pics of planting.

My berms are approx. 175 feet long. I have soaker hoses going along them for now, since it is July.

Haha yup. Total tractor swales!!! Front bucket and then going over them with a back blade.

All kinds of trees. About 20 verities of fruit trees. Peach, plum, apple, and pear. They were sold out of cherry so I'll get them later. I left spots to plant them. Also planted some blackberry and walnut. Hoping to get more berries going as well.
 
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
