I am trying to come up with the best way to plant spruces and pines this spring. I'm using them for mostly cover and some travel corridors but I want to know what the most beneficial ways to plant are. Should I do small clumps of 5-15 randomly spread throughout a clearcut? I was also thinking about planting in rows that fan out so you can see down them from a permanent stand we have set up. Should one designated area just be pines and spruces or should they be intermingled and not in rows? Let's hear some creative ideas!
