The land we've bought has about 30 pine trees on it, they're all less than 20 feet tall. I'm not sure what kind, but they look like beautiful Christmas trees. They've got to go. There are too many and they will spoil the view when they're bigger. See my thread titles "We did it." There's a picture there. My wife actually wants to leave a couple of the small ones to use as Christmas trees. I'd like to leave the ones growing close to the sides of the yard, but the ones in the middle need to go. I'd much rather plant full size apple and pear trees. We want goats. Do goats eat pine trees? What use would these saplings be to me? What suggestions can you give? They're only about 6 inches in diameter. I'd really rather not try to treat them with preservative to use as fence posts. My only thought would be some kind of temporary, rustic arbors.
