Yellow birch plantation
« on: August 22, 2010, 03:43:26 PM »
Back in 2002 I planted the back yard, where I cleared an orchard, to yellow birch. Picked the seed catkins in the fall 2 years before, stored them at the provincial seed centre and had a nursery grow the seedlings. Planted 500-600 here. Others I planted on the woodlot were lost to wildlife browse. The moose will pay a visit to some of these trees in the after dark hours. But, they have managed to survive pretty good. ;D

Female catkins:




Saplings mixed with cherry (pin, black):





Under planted here in black cherry:



Solid green, won't be too many more years and the bottom of the crowns will lift enough to see underneath like park. :)
Move'n on.
