Apple trees came into Massachusetts in 1635. Therefore, they have been reproducing for a very long time. Wild apple trees have created an incredible food source for the white-tailed deer in the northeast. The wild apple trees for sale are descendants of those trees. These trees have made some of the best habitat improvements of all time. They are growing wild from Pennsylvania up through into the New England states. Wild apple trees can be found growing in all kinds of soils, from heavy clay mountain soils to fertile bottomland soils.
PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR WILD APPLE TREES
Plant at least two different Wild Deer Apple Trees within proximity to each other to ensure pollination. Plant all apples and crabapples in moist, well-drained soil. A soil pH between 5.8 – 7 with adequate nutrient levels will ensure optimal growth.
If you have not completed a soil test, click here and improve your soil. I would highly recommend doing so. However, if you are not going to, I would recommend mixing 1 ounce for every three sq ft of 0-20-20 granular fertilizer in your soil at the time of planting. The first number tells you the percentage of nitrogen contained in the fertilizer. Nitrogen applied directly to the tree’s roots will cause death to your tree. Make sure the first number is zero.
Nitrogen is very mobile in the soil, and you can apply a small of nitrogen the following year. The 2nd and 3rd numbers are Phosphorus and Potassium. Apply these two nutrients at or well before planting because they are immobile in the soil. They need to be mixed in through the soil. We recommend completing a soil test and making amendments for the best results. We recommend applying 1 lb of 10-10-10 for every inch of diameter in the spring the following year and each year after planting.
Wild Apple Trees require a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight for growth and fruit production. Space trees 15′ – 20′ apart and use cages or vented tree tubes of at least 5′ to protect your trees. This will ensure your deer eat your fruit in a few years, not your trees this year.
