Hancock, IA Planting

The last tree planting of the spring occurred on a property north of Hancock, IA.  This planting covered just over 7 acres surrounding an amazing pond.  This site was also by far and away the steepest site we planted on this spring.  After stretching the wheelbase of the tractor out a couple feet it found sure footing on the slopes and the trees went in nicely.

We were lucky enough to have a couple of showers move through the area soon after the planting was completed to help all of the seedlings get a jump start on their root establishment.  This will be another showcase property in the future.
