Tree Spacing

Rootstock selection has an impact on optimal tree spacing, due to differing influences on tree habit.  Please fell free to contact us to discuss your requirements.

Return on investment is advanced and break-even period reduced with higher density plantings.  However, overcrowding and associated problems can become an issue, resulting in the need to remove trees/reduce planting density.

Suggested spacing/density for:

  • M7 Navel
  • Afourer Mandarin
  • Lemons
  • Pistachios
  • Avocados
