Laying out an orchard
I laid out part of an orchard today. The rows are 20 feet apart and the flags are 6 feet within the row. That is about 360 trees to the acre. A commercial orchard would run over 1000 trees/acre, typically planting 4' within the row and as tight row-to-row as their mowing equipment allows.
Then I sprayed glyphosate to kill the grass to prepare for early April planting.
