Planting Trees for Wildlife

Off season projects should be at the top of your to-do list now that deer season is over. Right now is a great time to begin planting trees to benefit your wildlife. So much emphasis is put on food plots, but many people forget about mast producing trees because of the lack of instant gratification. It takes years for your work of planting the trees to produce results, but they are an integral part of a wildlife management plan and with proper care can provide food for many years.

The Wildlife Group offers a vast selection of mast and fruit trees as well as planting and growing supplies. Our show this week is an in-depth how-to plant trees for wildlife with Allen Deese, the owner of The Wildlife Group. He covers their process in packing and shipping the trees to ensure healthy trees upon delivery to you. Allen then takes you through what you need to do in order to properly plant trees for wildlife on your property. If you’ve ever wondered how to prepare the hole for planting, how deep to plant it, and any other tricks you can do to ensure the longevity of your investment then, this is the video for you.
