So today I finally finished this section of the field, right pain in the hole as it's full.of giant boulders that were buried by a digger bout 20 years ago so just under the surface.

I am trying to keep the rows neat as you view them from the main road so I dig a mini drain to dry up one tree site.

Bought some 100 Scots Pine, 25 European Larch, 50 Alders.

Would like to get 200ish holly as I would like to establish some hedges on land that has very little shelter but holly seems to be hard to get this year.

My hope is to eventually join all the areas I am planting so that a squirrel could literally get to any tree without touching the ground.

I have taken another video of the nursery section. The larger trees are approx 12 years old. I will be planting out, hopefully, 400 this winter.






I can’t seem to view the video
