Planting Evergreens at the Farm

Tree planting continues at the farm with a group of beautiful evergreen specimens.

The outdoor grounds crew is working hard to plant the thousands of trees that have arrived - most recently, a collection of pine trees, and spruce trees, as well as oaks, maples and even some ground covers.

They all came from Musser Forests, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based company specializing in conifer and hardwood seedlings and transplants. Many of the bare root trees were potted temporarily while their root systems develop, but a lot of young trees were also planted directly into the ground back in the woodlands of my farm, where they will thrive under forest cover.
