Fall is a perfect time for planting, and in the nursery we planted a few new crops last week. Our new evergreen crop is in the ground and off to a great start. Be looking for our future crop of Norway Spruce, White Pine, Black Hills Spruce and Vanderwolf’s Pyramid Pine in a few years!
We also planted our grass strips to help protect our soil. The strips are in between the tree rows and allow our soil to stay covered and in place during our growing process. We like to fall plant our grass strips so that we get a thick healthy grass stand with minimal weeds. This practice also helps reduce soil erosion and uses minimal tillage. It also allows us the ability to avoid using pre-emergent herbicides. We are proud to pass on healthy soils to the next generation!
Fall is a perfect time to plant for the future!
