    I want to learn how to grow different types of trees. I am thinking of starting with oak, but I gradually want to move onto fruit baring trees so that when I finally own land, I can start an orchard. Does anyone have any experience with cultivating trees or orchards? Would I need some sort of licensing, I would love some input.

    I have heard about some of the started trees and thought that I should avoid them. I've heard that some places that sell started trees have been patenting their rare species of trees using new technology. This lead me to believe that they were genetically modified and because I am unsure about how to confirm that I am getting organic started trees I wanted to start from scratch.

    Is it true that a lot of the seeds that are sold nowadays are only productive for one season and will bare fruits with unproductive seeds? Is that the reason why you buy already started trees?

    I am from a tropical country so our trees are tropical fruits - mango, star fruit, sugar apple, cashew, mulberry and small trees like lemon, local citrus called calamansi, dragon fruit, camias, etc. With fruits, it is more interesting because you get excitement with the prospect of harvesting when the tree would bear fruits. Can you imagine harvesting hundreds of mangoes several times in one fruiting season? There was a season when our mango tree gave us more than 500 fruits in one season. With the sugar apple, our 2 trees are prolific such that we harvest more than 20 fruits in a month with the fruiting continuing for several months.

    I would suggest that you plant fruit trees that you prefer so that when it bears flowers, you will be excited no end.
