    I will be planting douglas firs this year but 1200/hour is an incredibly high rate!
    All I can say is Wow!

    I planted 1,000 by hand in January with a planting bar on a hill side. Maybe 100 a hour if I'm lucky.I have to do it the hard way, clear the land put up rabbit fence then run drip lines to all the trees.
