Tree spacing

    2 responses

Hi,
I have a question regarding spacing.
In the picture, the distance between the yellow marks is 8-9m. Currently one yellow marks is where a soursop is and the other is a proposed spot for Longan. Distance of trunks from fence is about 2.5m. I plan to put in lychee/s in between these two trees (currently have marcotted but would like to put seedling for height and strength). Is two lychees too much in this space (3m between each four tree trunks) or is one tree better (4.5m between three tree trunks). In front of these locations about 2.5m away is a nam doc mai and galaxy jackfruit.
I know :) The pool looks bad, will be getting that dug out and filled in the future.

Thanks

Hi Jez

In my opinion it is much better to dug up the pool and be filled up first before attempting to plant anything near it because that will be a monster job and I'm afraid that anything near that earthwork will be disturbed and it is easier to situate all of your proposed fruit tree planting minus the deep chasm nearby. Yes, 4.5 meter distance between fruit trees is a lot better than 3. Three meters is too close once they are about to reach their max width and height. Move them a meter or more away from the jackfruit and mango trees. Those are humongous trees when fully grown.

Well, the onus is still yours.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi Fruitylicious1,
Thanks for your advice, I was leaning towards one single tree (4.5m gap) between the two also. Having four along there would be a bit cramped. The mango would need to be dug up before the pool fill in as it’s only a metre away, once the pool is gone I’ll replant it further out. Same with the jackfruit... if it makes it through winter. I’ll be taking appropriate measures such as setting up a screen to protect from cold wind/rain and put plastic up the trunk slightly and about a foot diameter along ground to keep as dry as possible.
Pool will be sorted in a few months, hopefully. Lychee is currently in a pot so might put in protected area over winter and put in the ground beginning of autumn.
Thanks again for the tips.
