Planting Bur Oak Trees

My Bedford, New York farm continues to transform with the planting of many beautiful and interesting trees.

Trees are very important to our environment - they help combat climate change, provide habitat and food for birds and other animals, and release oxygen for us to live. Yesterday, my crew planted a group of bur oak trees, Quercus macrocarpa - two rows along the outsides of the boxwood allee, one on the left and one on the right. They will grow so nicely here, and provide beautiful texture and shade when mature.

Here are some photos.
