To plant a pine, for example, one need be neither god nor poet; one need only own a shovel. By virtue of this curious loophole in the rules, any clodhopper may say: let there be a tree-and there will be one."

most fruit trees do better with another of the same ..or if not you can always rob a bearing branch from a tree somewhere and put it in a bucket near your tree for cross pollination..that is the old fashioned way of doing it.
you can also graft a branch of another tree on your tree for the same purpose.

So while the video is a work of fiction I do think it is possible to create a forest on the prairie and create the conditions for long grasses to work with you rather than against you.
