Potting Many Trees at My Farm

Our annual tree potting and planting project continues at my Bedford, New York farm.

Every year, I try to plant as many trees as I can. I feel strongly about reforestation and giving back to the earth, so the more trees planted, the better. Many of them come to me as bare-root cuttings that are then potted in individual containers where they can develop strong root systems for two to three years before being transplanted to more permanent locations - in allées, in groves, and in large groups in the woodland. It's a big undertaking every spring, but it's so satisfying to see these trees grow and flourish.
