Planting Test Trees on the Homestead

In this video, I plant a variety of trees on our new homestead. Unfortunately, I don’t really have much time to spare this year for messing around with trees, instead I am more focused the yard site, my brothers wedding and our impending twins. Still, I wanted to get a wide variety of trees into the ground to see which do well.


  1. How did your trees do this summer Matt?
    I also recommend putting some metal hardware cloth around them to protect them from voles under the snow!

      Hey Kurt! Thanks for checking in! My life has been a bit crazy lately and I haven’t been able to keep up. The trees are doing good I think although it has been awhile since I was out to check on them. There was a few losses but all but one of the fruit trees seem to be doing good. We had planned to move out to the property this year but with the twins that didn’t happen. I actually have some video of me checking the trees I have to edit and put up. I should probably go out there one more time this year and get them ready for winter. The hardware cloth is a good idea.
