 Christmas Tree planting

Does anyone have experience using a 3PH christmas tree planter? I would like to put in about 5 acres of trees this year...even if the deer end up getting more than their share!

 Christmas Tree planting

I have used the tree planter that the state of Wisconsin loans out for tree planting. Did you have questions?

Treeman, thanks for replying. Do I need to plow or anything first, or is this a "no-till" type planter? I'm not sure if any of the Pennsylvania offices loan a planter. Is it difficult to work, and how many were you able to plant in a day?

The tree planter was not a 3ph type. It sat on 2 wheels and you would pull it with the drawbar. You needed aux. hydraulics to raise and lower it. There is a large knife wheel that would cut the sod then spreads it. The person in the back lowers the tree into the slit and two angled tires push the soil together. It doesn't like to hit rocks but normal soil is ok. You can easily plant 5 acres in a day.

Treeman, thanks for the reply, I think I got most of it...looks like 5 acres per day...sounds about what i need. I would like to put in 4-5 acres per year. I'll have to try to contact my local ag office to see if they have planters available.

You may have to contact your DNR office. I searched "county tree planter on the web and came up with this site under links.
It's similar to the planter I used.

You may want to scrap the idea of planting this spring and prepair your field this summer fall. Maybe till up your field this spring do a soil sample and start bringing the soil up to where it should be also if you want to feed some deer for the year plant a brassica. Then in Late Aug. or early Sept. disk it in and fertilize again and add what ever else you may need for your trees. Plant a winter wheat for the fall hunt. That should leave you with a nice flat well prepaired field for next spring tree planting. I am not a tree farmer but have planted thousands of trees, IMHO you should prepair your fields or dont waiste your time with the trees. You will be glad you waited a year so you can be ready next year to do it right.

Arrow, As usual, I have too many irons in the fire, and may not get around to planting this spring anyway. I still haven't decided which brush hog I want, but wanted to ask you if have used your Boomer without your FEL, with something as heavy as a 6' medium duty brush hog on the back...I'm not worried about the power, but I am concerned with my hilly terrain without the FEL (it's on the wish list as well!) I'm going to an auction this Saturday to look at a 6' KK brush hog that is a year old, but I'm still leaning toward a "Quality" rotary mower by Woods or Bush Hog.

Blueman,
I have not bought a rotary mower yet but I'm leaning toward the KK. From what I hear, it's a very good unit. Not as strong as the Bush Hog but half the price. How hilly is your terrain? I have 45 degree hills that I'm concerned about also.
