Which fruit tree grows good in wake forest?

My uncle told me that he planted apricot, cherry and plum trees there in the early 20th century. When he was planting, there was no problem for them to live in the wake forest. Now, when the trees were already well established, they have lots of dead branches and rotten trunk. Should I prune these trees now, or just wait for the next season? If not prune, how could we cut off all these dead branches and rotten trunk?


You need to look at the tree's trunk as a whole and all of the leaves. Some trees can sustain a little damage if you only take a certain amount of the trunk out at a time. If the leaves fall, they are definitely dead. If the trunk is too badly infected with rot or infested with bugs, you might want to wait until next season.


I've lived in the forest for 30+ years and have trimmed all of the dead trees. So what you've described is normal. We have recently had a severe winter, which killed the entire crowns of many trees. But trees have a 'head start' for at least two seasons. There are very few "breathers" in the 'wild' today that were not around 30-50 years ago. So you should have no problem recovering your trees.

ou are not far from what you would see in nature.

ou do have a chance of catching that good 'avalanche thunderstorm' where the leaves look like they're turning to gold for a brief instant, then the leaves are just clean, red and the leaves look great.

ou can still see gold falls on the snow around your home. But you're right. Your 3rd question should be about "when will I see good gold?" and that would be a tough question to answer. The answer to that would be early spring.But more importantly you'll just have to stay tuned!

ou'll know when the leaves are golden from the'sound' your fingers will make on the surface. It will sound like it's raining when your fingering the leaves and not on them. Of course, the other way is to dig your fingers in to see if the leaves are wet with water. :)

ou know that old 'happy as a clam" moment. It's a lovely feeling. We should be able to tell you when the 'fall fever' hits as well, and will tell you which direction the wind blows, and at that time we have heard that the trees are actually making rumbles, sounds, and noises you have never heard before.

ou may want to use a rustoleum product called "tree dip" to keep the brown leaves off the ground. If you've been visiting and out in the wild and you've seen anyone out there who has a brown trunk you've seen some of the 'what used to be trees' there. But if the brown tree is around the edge of the forest or a small grouping of trees around a trailer, barn, or something like that it is called what it is. If you see anyone with a brown trunk out there and they look like they're getting dressed or walking in a direction. Is that a person with a 'brown trunk' or a 'lighter brown trunk' is a real good question. It would take a neighbor or an uncle who has been there forever to tell you. Your home trees will also look a bit 'gray'. In most cases your new trees will bounce right back with green leaves. (This is the "come back to life" factor) However, 'gray' trees are the ones that most often look dead with brown leaves. It's because the previous seasons were a bit on the warm side and there was not much that developed in the current growing season. Some of the trees around the edges of the woods will be looking a bit pink and will have dark brown tips. We say, "Pink has never been my color. This just might be my year. This will all depend on what happens over the next season. :)

Of course you need to be prepared for all of the insects too.

Black flies will be around. So will mosquitoes. So will deer flies. And the blood sucking black flies. Deer flies come in September and October and are quite annoying. Your town may have a school in the woods next door to your home. If so, they need to be prepared for that. You can help prevent a lot of mosquito breeding by using a garbage can with a tight fitting lid. The jar keeps the flies in and away from your garbage, but the can also keeps the flies out.

ou may have to deal with a small amount of a disease called 'chestnut blight'. However, if you stay 'lucky' we'll have a lot of weather and a lot of rain, so the infection won't get into your chestnut trees. We always say, the 'fish have more water than chestnuts."

ou don't want to plant your trees in the same place where you've planted any others. If the area is one you had planted last year, some of the root systems will be similar to last year. This can kill some of the young trees. So you really don't want to plant 'right next to' your trees from a previous year. That just doesn't happen and will cause the death of one of your trees.

ou don't want to plant too close to power lines. If your home runs on electricity, the lines can come down through the woods and cause tree damage or even break a leg. So we'll suggest you plant where there is at least 4' on all sides of the lines. And don't plant close to any rock outcroppings.

ou've lived in the forest a long time so you know what's going on in your area. You don't want to plant 'on top' of a tree that has rot in it. As one grower said, "Where the

    I find that you are not right. I can prove it. Write in PM, we will discuss.

    You have hit the spot. There is something about that, and it's a good idea. I am ready to support you.
