Newly planted Red and Bur in the Oak Savanna

Got inspired late to plant over eighty hardwood trees this spring.  This years focus was to add more bur and red oaks to the Savana.  To introduce more fall color and interest to the nursery, three species of maples (Red Sunset, Northwood and Autumn Blaze) were plated on the hill west of the brown barn.  Tulip Tree, Canada Red Choke Cherry and Crabapples were interspersed among the nine maples.   To catch the rain water from this hill and the one on the north a small pond below the planting is being constructed by David.   Sidra and Hilario helped plant the trees in the holes dug by David’s large two foot auger.  Our record was 30 tress in one day.
