I planted my trees close together on micro swales and they are semi's. They are well mulched with wood chips and have extreme growth even through a drought. I am ready for the first pruning and wondering if there is a strategy for closely planted trees?  They are all in rows angled toward S-SW direction. Rows are about 15 feet apart. Should I just take some height off the straight up central branch for the first year and worry about shaping next year?

Thanks for any guidance

Welcome, I am in progress on a half hoop greenhouse off my shop on east side with south and east exposure. I have a basic hoop covering aquaponics system now, but working on final. Any thoughts on double layer design with positive pressure (is it worth it)? Glad to have you in the permies forum. Danny

Thanks for the book. I am not quite done, but it is awesome so far. People I have told about it love the title as well.

Question, I have a remote cabin and would like to level it on a new foundation. How would you approach this task if it is really hard to hire anyone local?

Awesome,
I listened to your Ted Talk. Amazing about the teacher. I was a Boy Scout Scoutmaster and that was what I had with my troop for a short time. I did nothing the senior patrol leader ran everything other than minor consult. That is the definition of a "Boy lead troop".
Stories are awesome. I tell a lot and my buddy tells a ton. My wife calls them "Man Stories" when she gets tired of us telling them.

I am zone 7 (maybe b) in north alabama on top of hill ~750 elevation. It surprised me because the first two years they went gang buster. Maybe the cold winter did get them due to being raised an not enough mulching.

Newby here; I had several comfrey plants going great on a mini hugel and they have all vanished this winter? Will they come back or do I need to dig them and move them?

Thanks everyone!

Started car pooling with a guy from work that became legally blind this last year and unable to drive. I think I have found a new friend and have engaging conversations on the commute.
