Spring Tree Planting

Recommended Posts

Live in Washington county, Hugo, Minnesota and want to plant 100 to 150 trees this Spring. Where would be a good place to buy seedlings? 21.5 acres mostly flat sandy soil with one 3 acre swamp...what would be the best trees to plant? Norways do well and the deer don't bother them to much but what else would work? Thanks

Washington County extension service will probably have some deals on seedlings in the spring. They can usually recommend what is best for your soil type according to their stock. All the pines, spruce and cedars will do well in sandy soils. Buffaloberry, Amur maple, Ninebark, Snowberry and Serviceberry would be good naturalizing shrubs for sandy soil. Crabs, Hawthorns and Russian Olive are good fruit trees for wildlife for sandy soils. Rubrum maple, black spruce, dogwood, Viburnum, Willow and Winterberry would all do well in the low areas. See what they have in stock and pick accordingly.

The end of April is a good time to plant bare root stock. Use a weed mat or mulch to keep competing weeds down and to keep some moisture in the soil around the root zone. Use a quality starter fertilizer when planting them. !/3 compost mixed into the existing soils will also help them to get established.

Good Luck!

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
