Netted area planting

In May we planted part of our new netted area.  Going with a very high-density planting to hopefully bring production online earlier.  It is going to be a challenge both managing Hass trees at that density and keeping them small enough to sit under the netting.  Hopefully we are up to the challenge.  The netting will hopefully allow Avowest to have higher yields using less water and produce blemish free fruit.  We still have part of the netted area to plant but will be using a different rootstock there.  Hopefully that will be planted in spring.

Finished in June, planting 0.7 Ha under netting. 770 trees planted. Will be interesting to see how we go managing that density of trees.
