Hopefully they make it through! I don't think there are many people growing these species at 50 degrees North Latitude.

When we first took delivery the greenhouse temps were daily swinging from 40 degrees to 110.

You need to be able to cover a large area, because the roots are not necessarily straight down from where the plants are this year.

Loretta, I'd love to know more about the chipper you bought? Would you consider posting about it in another thread?

In both instances, there is quite a bit of 'burned stuff' that didn't burn completely to ash.
Can any of that be used for soil improvement?
Loretta, Sorry I didn't see your post earlier: Wood ash is rich in potassium which is good for developing flowers and fruit and for ripening growth to toughen it, Charcoal becomes biochar in contact with soil which acts as a nutrient 'battery' harbouring water and bio-organisms in the soil. It is probably good for your soil especially around perennial plants, but also where you grow fruit like tomatoes. Depending on how good/dry your soil tends to be you may or may not see a real result, but unless they burnt any nasty man made stuff along with the branches, I think it will be good for soil improvement
