This last year I've planted a lot of trees and have learned a lot about orchards and food forests. I still have a lot to learn. But one thing that I've been curious about is how fast fruit and nut trees grow, and what they look like as they mature. I've seen young trees and I've seen mature trees, but around here I haven't seen a lot in between.
So, the idea to create this post came to mind! I'd love to see your photos of your trees and shrubs over time, if you have them. I'd love to see how they progressed. I'll try to get out and upload some photos of mine soon. I think it'd be a great way to give beginning orchardists an idea of what to expect, even if tree growth varies site to site. Thanks in advance for sharing!
