I have grown about a dozen pear trees from an old farm tree. The plants are looking pretty good (about 2 feet tall in 3 gallon pots). I want to put them out at some farmland this winter, along with 4 or 5 pecan trees.
The area is an old hay field, which was just cut, and I will now use a portion of it for trees--these plus some sawtooth oaks. My question has to do with placement. It is what I would call small rolling hills. Most of land is furtile, having been limed and fertilized over the years. Would the pears or the pecans most benefit from the lower portions (valleys) which will be a bit richer soil and better moisture?
