Longleaf Pine

I had a crew come in and hand plant 5000 containerized seedling on 11 acres just east of the church and cemetery.

This is the longleaf pine in the grass stage.  It will remain like this for 2-3 years while the tap root establishes itself.

I used a 4 gallon backpack sprayer this summer to spray glyphosate on all that was green. 

Ben Rolf's advice was the more the better.  I settled on a very high 4% concentration.

I then hired a guy to chop the field with a skid loader dragging a large drum.

It took down all the dead and dying trees and bushes to make it easy to hand plant.
