Tree Management

Propagated by seed. Seed best sown as soon as it is ripe in an outdoor seed bed or directly on farm land. Needs protection from mice and squirrels. Seeds lose viability if allowed to dry out. Trees produce a deep taproot and should not be left in a nursery bed for more than 2 growing seasons without being moved or they will transplant very badly. Seeds sown directly on the farm produce the best trees
