  1. One interesting highlight of this garden is the close spacing between fruit trees. Many are only 5-6′ apart. The garden has been growing since the 80’s and nothing speaks as powerfully as success. The forest garden is booming. Some trees outgrow the others. Some prefer some shade. A tree is cut down if it doesn’t work out. We’re doing the same thing in our forest garden. Due to the heavy clay soil, we planted extra in case some died, which some have. It’s better to have extra than not enough in my opinion.
