One of the most common questions I have been asked is...
After which I'll take a look at what kind of land your own - is it wet, is it dry, is it sandy, does it have a clay component, etc etc. This gives me insight to what tree species would be best suited to grow... however my next question will be:
Because although I will advise you on what can and should grow best on your land, there is usually plenty of wiggle room for options - which is where YOUR objective will prove to be incredibly important.
Why isn't this answer cut and dry?
- you have dry and sandy land: plant longleaf
- you have clay land: plant loblolly
-you have sandish land that can be wet: plant slash
But the truth is a lot of these pine species have overlap on where they are capable to grow...
