Hi everyone. I am hoping to plant an orchard. Problem is, I'm located in the lower part of Michigan, in an area that can get very wet, with a couple inches standing water during the spring months, usually. We have very flat land. Is there anything we can do to, be it hugelberms, pond, etc, to be able to grow fruit trees on our property? Any advice would be appreciated!

My experience has been that many fruit trees are quite resilient when they are flooded during the dormant season, and some can even stand a good deal of flooding during the growing season. How much standing water are you talking about, and for how long?
