    Quote:We got 30 trees from them a number of years ago. The rabbits ate most of them. The dogs ate the drip system lines. There are only two still living. They are doing well but if I just grow them myself I can do just a few at a time. That way I can more fully care for them. Too hard to protect and irrigate 30 separate trees all at once. Don't know if they've changed they're policies since then, but used to be you had to purchase a minimum of 15 at a time. Still it's a good deal if you have a group of people that can help plant them, like boy scouts doing a service project. [​IMG]

    Yeah I had to put chicken wire around all my trees to keep the rabbits from eating them. Also, I buried the drip irrigation - the only part that is above ground is the emitters which are inside the chicken wire, too.

    Ya, thirty cages and digging a ditch to thirty trees on the side of a mountain and in rock is just tooooo much! One or two at a time is about all I can handle.
