I'm looking at this from the side of what is harder?
- Dig 300 holes and plant, stick, fence, mulch, and a tree tube for protection
- Set up a temp green house, toss in pot, and mass mulch the pots together with a few walk ways.
I'll have a lower death rate with option 2. I found some info says it I weight till year 2 that they will not need as much protection and will have a higher servile rate.
I have 2.5 miles of road way that I want to plant trees on, so this is not going to be a one year thing. I'll be getting more seeds and planting more next winter. I should need around 2000 trees to finish in 4 to 5 years.
