field of two year old trees

Here is a field of acorn-germinated live oaks two years after planting. Some are big, some are small, some are pretty, some are not. The important thing to remember is that your protocol should result in trees with one dominant leader, spaced branches, and a good trunk taper brought about by ample low temorary branches.
