seaacre - that is a name made to go into a fantasy novel!
What is the pH of your soil now (after mulching etc)?

seaacre:

I'm guessing that your soil now has a pH of 10+ - this you would think is beyond the ability of most plants to grow - so you are doing amazing wonders to get the trees established.

I was so amazed with what you were doing I looked on the net for growing trees in such conditions. Now although I didn't find anything about sand dunes near the sea (where I guess you have the added problem of salt) I did find these YouTube videos on the University of Nevada (?) amazingly successfully growing fruit trees on very limey (high pH) soils in the desert.

Here they are: Part 1: http://www.5min.com/Video/How-to-Grow-Fruit-Trees-in-the-Desert-Part-12-166276920
Part 2:

BUT - you probably know all this - so I'm also pushing this up the top because I'm sure someone knows something here that will help you!
