Planting

Trees were planted on March 11, 2010. The spacing is 16 ft. between rows and 5 ft. between trees. The row spacing was kept consistent with the rest of the orchard, but for these training systems, a minimum spacing could be 8 ft. for UFO, 10 ft. for TSA, and 11 ft. for KGB.

 

Holes being drilled, 5 ft. apart, March 2010.
