What type of trees do you plant? Oak, spruce, pine, maple.
Maple trees seem to be the most difficult.
I have had great luck with dogwoods and red maples.
I collect the small seedlings in the spring and plant them in pots.
I water them often and keep them warm for a year or two. Then I just keep putting them in bigger pots until they get big enough to be seen by lawn mowers and have lots of concentrated roots.
I can move them around in the pots and even bring them inside when it gets real cold. I can also cull out the faster growing trees. Those are the ones I plant in the ground. Usually when they are about 4, 5, or 6 feet tall.
This method has an almost 100% success rate, and I have also given many trees as gifts. Now people both down at the river and around the farm here request my trees.
I have dogwoods and red maples some 30 feet tall.
