Cold Creek Tree Farms
It takes 3 people to plant the trees.
The driver is responsible for keeping the rows straight and spaced evenly. He uses a 6-foot bar that rides along the tree line.
The ground is sprayed with weed killer before the trees are planted.
It takes two planters to keep up with the machine.
The large wheel at the back of the machine is for timing. Each time the wheel “clicks” it is time to place a tree in the hole created by the spade. The two tires on the back of the planter seal up the ground after the tree is planted.
We can plant 750 trees an hour using the machine.
