Ok, I hate to keep asking questions about pine trees but just need a little more info. Like I said before I am only planting about 500. My question is the time to plant. Is there a better month or time to plant. Seems lie Dec. is the time but will I have good success rate in planting like March? I can wait until whatever time, I would just like to go ahead as soon as possible. Thanks

    Plugs or bare root?

    April and May are pretty dry and hot and windy so winter planting is done so plants can have a chance to get some roots going before then. I have planted in the summer, when we had predictable rains, with some success.

    I will defer to Woodsrunner for specifics. Did you go with long leaf?

    Consider planting by the moon phase.

    Check out one of the "Farmers Almanac" versions.

    It certainly can help when planting from seeds.

    Bare-root transplants benefit from a spritz of fish emulsion.

    One tablespoon per gallon of good water.

    Spray the roots / root ball, and a bit in the hole.

    Wear gloves ... it stinks, but it works.

    Cyclist, I am going to use slash. I think for what I am doing they will be better suited. And Nick I do a lot of planting with the almanac. Am actually a certified nurseryman, just don't know a lot about planting pines. Want to get it right the first time you know.

    In S.W. Ga. Most are planted Jan-Feb. This is with forester's handling the planting. Woods will be along and set us all straight.

    We just did 120 of
    880 acres in bare-roots in SW GA early last month. Kind of messed up our last month in that zone but 2 bucks were shot post planting.
    Nice 8 pt was taken in the bottom shown in this pic. He was coming out left to right and a guy shot him at 255 yds per the range finder.

    When you said Hwy 97, I knew by the rolling land in the pics, that you were south of Bainbridge.

    I don't, but I probably could. I miss that golf course though. Nothing like walking up into the "clubhouse" with nobody there, leaving a 20 on the counter, grabing a key and taking a cart.
