Did you know that the goverment sells 19.99 foot christmas trees for five bucks?
Yes you read this right, for just $5 you can visit this site and get a permit for up to a 20 foot tree.
Did you know that the Arbor Day Foundation sells trees and lots of other shrubs and plants insanely cheap?
Did you know that you can replant trees from different areas?
Simply dig up the root system and replant it somewhere else! (Follow all local laws)
Did you know that you can clone a tree branch depending on species?
Use pruning shears to take cuttings from a healthy parent. Not the more lush and green the better your chances are. Cut off a 6 or 8-inch section of current-season growth for each cutting. if possible; remove any flowers or buds on the cuttings.
Dig a much larger hole than you think you will need about 3 feet wide and 3 feet deep.
Fill the hole with regular soil without any chemical additives or peat moss etc.
Place the tree in the hole so that just the top of the root system sits on the ground
Leave a small divit so water can get to the roots
Mulch around the tree
We are now a fully licensed operation! We are pioneers in bringing back Vermont to it natural roots. (PUN INTENDED!). We have purchased a beautiful parcel of neglected rocky ex-pasture in Concord, VT for the sole purpose of scientific research on trees and Forestry in general. We are also looking to make the scenery better, perhaps sell a few trees, and sit back and relax among our 100’s of trees and plants.
- Our goal is to help maintain the true identity of Concord, VT by planting our first batch of:
- 50 (Acer saccharum) Maple Trees (Syrup producing)
- 50 (Picea pungens) blue spruce trees
- 100 (Salix) WIllow Trees
- Erect a 300 square foot greenhouse and supporting facility
- Construct a solar power plant (3000W) to help maintain the trees
- Finish an automated watering system for our 150 or so trees
