Well, I decided since I will be back home for a few months this fall that it would be a good time to get some trees in the ground. Thinking of ordering 10 Dunstan Chestnuts, 3 each of Arkansas Black apple and grafted Persimmon, and 5 American Crabapple. \:\)

If they are to be out in a field where you can't water every week, I highly recommend "Moisture Mizer" granules in the dirt around the roots. I have planted with and without it and I lost nearly every tree without the stuff and nearly 100 survived with it.

You can get it from various places but here's where I got mine:

I would also not plant a tree without the tree tubes. It forces them to reach for the light at the top of the tube and they grow a lot faster up to that point.

I ordered my trees from http://www.realtreenursery.com

Also ended up getting some of the Blue-X tree tubes, heard good things about them.

Yeah, I learned the hard way the first time I planted a tree out at the property - it was only a weeping willow I planted by my pond, so I didn't think I needed to protect it any. Boy was I wrong! Buck decided to use it as a rubbing post that fall and killed the tree, lol.

I was thinking of just using the tree tubes this fall since it will be late Oct when I get them planted, then t-post and chicken wire next summer - or do you think I should go ahead and fence them this winter as well?

So far I have only had one rub made on a tree with the tubes on it. I think deer see the larger diameter of the tube and don't recognize there being a tree inside. Of course a wire cage around each tree is even more protection against deer. It's a matter of how much risk you are willing to take. If you have a couple dozen identical trees, the loss of one doesn't matter much.

Out of about 75 trees with tubes on them, I had about 5 that the deer rubbed on. I found one tube about 100 yards away up in a thicket \:\) Put it back on the tree \:\)

Another great tip is to use pvc or conduit for your stakes.

Its all about the investment to me,if you've watered a young tree,sprayed for bugs/disease etc,weeded fert etc,well if a buck destroyed a tree,you can by another tree,but you cant get the years back .
