This early work on planting fruit trees is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains information on the methods, tools and planning techniques for planting an orchard. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for the amateur fruit grower. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
