Direct Seeding

If you want your tree planting to look more “natural” , direct seeding is a great alternative to seedling planting.  We collect local tree and shrub seed to plant on your site.  The site is prepared to a nice soft bed of dirt and the tree seed is broadcast spread with approximately 8,000 – 10,000 seeds per acre.  This technique is good in areas where there is concern for deer browse- we overwhelm the deer with thousands of stems per acre.  Trees grow very fast with added competition from all of the stems.
