I have just started to read about greening the desert and discovered that there is way more info out there than I thought. The purpose of this post is to gather information to help me do research on a specific topic. The topic: is it an effective strategy to dig a deep hole - deep being 20 to 40 feet - that a tree will be planted in and stuff the hole with a variety of nutrients, organic matter, worms, etc to help train tree roots to grow deep and fast, develop stability and more quickly become water self sufficient?
