Fruit Tree Day

Hi everyone. I'm Randy of Randy's Orchard. I'm the past Chairman VPA and headed up Fruit Tree Day for several years. What my friend Greg Peterson, started and I continued was to take the guess work out of buying trees. I have 500 trees. I lecture on the topic. I've grown almost every tree on the list.

Hello, Randy. I am closing on a cottage in Yarnell on Monday. The back yard is fenced, has a juniper and some other type of oak looking thing. I would like to put various fruit trees up there. Could you give me some recommendations? I see many apple trees in neighbor's yards. In Phoenix I have 3 citrus, 1 fig, 2 apple, mesquite, palo verde, crepe myrtle, various vines, veg & flower gardens, some cactus, chickens, dogs, kids. This yard getting full-- moving up north :)

Seems I am not the only one in group looking to know how deep to dig today to prep for trees . I know the holes should be about 2x larger than pot of tree or if bare root were in the tree.. but for now site unseen we do not know the size of the pot to use to multiply by 2. Please help. Thanks Linda

Randy - business question - I met a paralegal from NY - looking for work out here. He just got here 3 weeks ago. You know anyone hiring ? He did go to law school & did not pass NY bar exam. Plans to take AZ bar next year. Your thoughts? Feel free to call or email - whichever is easier.
