Ten Rules for Planting Trees

Since the approval of the Community Orchard, I have been spending time researching and planning how to start the process. We decided on a date to get our young trees into the ground, so to celebrate, I thought I would share with you ten rules for planting trees. Our plant date for the orchard is Saturday, April 11, at 1 p.m. if you are interested in helping get this community project started. You can call the Extension office at 620-793-1910 for more information. We hope to see you there!

Orchard announcement

When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer is "10 years ago." The second best time to plant a tree however, is today.

I have fond memories of helping my mom trim our trees, and more than once, seeing just how high I could climb in an old Catalpa tree before I lost my nerve!
