Multi-story tree lines

If you are interested in implementing a tree line in an area to create a system that includes things like apple trees and trees that contain blueberries and strawberries, make sure you’re properly prepared. This complex system is a great way to build up a food system for yourself as you’ll always have fresh fruit. The strata of the trees is usually distributed in different tree lines and this helps with regards to harvesting. You should start in an area that has a recent history of grain monoculture as well in order to transform the area into a nice, biodiverse system.

Key Takeaways:

  • A tree line is a great way to create a system that can give you fruits as when you plant them you can set them in an order such as apple tree, strawberry tree, etc.
  • The best way to implement a tree line is to start with a recent grain monoculture area and change that land into a biodiverse system.
  • When you plant the tree lines you’ll need to take proper care and maintenance of the tree to keep them properly hydrated so that they can grow quickly.

“A highlight of this design, which is a common question, especially for commercial plantations, is that the strata of the trees were distributed in different lines. While some lines concentrate the low and canopy layers, others receive the medium and emergent. It facilitates management and harvesting.”
