Tree Grower - Thanks for your comment. The stats in the post came from the University of Illinois Extension office.
Margaret - have fun with your new scope. Hope your Christmas was merry!


Postcard picture purr-fect! Merry Christmas to you, family and kitty-cats. And thank you again for all your help with my new scope -- can't wait to take it out and start playing (great price too ;) )

Tree per acre would be closer to 1000 @ acre.
6x6 spacing is the norm. Divide that into 43,560 sq ft and it will give you 1200 +/- tree per acre...figure for a road between every 10th row...and 1000 @ acre is much more accurate.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
