2014 tree growing season

Unread postby BassBoysLLP » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:11 pm

Too early for giant pumpkins. Too early for my garden vegetables. But a perfect time to start this year's trees. Today OP-367 poplar. Tomorrow I'll start some hybrid willow cuttings.

I started growing some 0P-367s last spring. They only grew about a foot last year. Hopefully they will really grow good this year.
It's not the knowing that's difficult, but the doing.

OP-367s are showing their first sets of leaves. They'll be growing fast over the next 4 weeks under the lights.

Bass

What is the average growth a year in our neck of the woods? Do they grow fast enough to create cover and edges in a year or two?

3-7 feet per year depending on the summer heat and how often you water...so yes to your second question 8-).

That's cool, are they rooted cuttings?

Nope. Sticks planted in the ground.

These particular cuttings were established with rooting hormone; however, cutting can be established by lightly shaving areas where you want to establish roots.
