    I'm looking into starting a small tree farm on 1 to 2 acres. I would be growing mostly evergreens and possibly other breeds for future sale....landscape purposes...sell and transplant. I'm trying to gather as much info as possible on the how to's and marketability of this project. Anyone had any experience or know of any books to get started with?

    I was told by a lifetime grower that I had enough land to plant 3-4000 blue spruce....thats more than enough trees for me to handle as a side investment...if they sell.
