Planting Peach Trees

Below are pictures of Danny, Chris, Worth, and Billy laying off the rows and planting peach trees.

This is an example of how we lay off rows. We measure the row, and then hold up a stick which I sight and drive to with the tractor and subsoiler. If you plant trees 20 x 20, it takes 108 trees per acre. I recommend 20 x 15; this lets you put 144 trees per acre. Trees planted around the house for personal use, I would recommend at least 10 ft. apart

Once the rows have been measured, Worth holds a stick for Danny to sight and drive to make straight rows for planting. The drive row is 20 ft. apart and the planting row is 15 ft. apart.
