It is a good thing that Jon likes to prune trees, he finds it relaxing. Besides pruning olive trees we have fruit trees and pecan trees to be trimmed along with our wind break trees. These trees are still short and pencil thin, but they are alive. So much for being told they were fast growing and would provide shade for the cows and sheep within a year. We will be pleased if they do their job in five years.
This is one of the 300 original trees we planted along the huerta fence.
If you look closely, you can seem them in a row between the sheep and the cows. The cows are outside the huerta and the sheep are inside the huerta. Both sets of animals are doing their job happily eating the pasture.
