New plantings

Its always going to be a value judgment as to when the best time of year to plant Eucalyptus trees is 🤔

What I can say is that I don’t sell, or plant bare rooted trees, so they can be planted at any time of year 😉
I did get luck with my planting in the video below as it rained heavily the next day and is forecast to rain for the next few.

If it is dry, then providing the plantation isn’t too big or inaccessible, then you can water artificially if it is very dry.

Once thing I would definitely recommend is some shelter from the winter gales and this is going to be an ongoing focus for my plantation, i.e. deciduous companion trees, particularly fast growing hybrid poplar to take the sting out of the worst of the cold winter gales.
