This is a tree farm. It is related to the nursery farm I posted earlier in that these farms raise a variety of different kinds of trees for resale at your local nursery or garden shop. These trees are planted directly in the ground and when ready to go to the retailer, they are dug up and either transplanted into tubs or the root ball is tied in burlap.

Again, this is a small farm but you can see several varieties of trees here.

Great photo, Cal. My question is, is the soil fertile? It looks very grey as if it were mostlyclay and rocks.

The soil in this region is predominantly clay. They truck in a lot of top soil and use a lot of lime to help break down the clay.
