This winter is warm and wet. I don't think there is any disadvantage to planting now. If the ground was frozen, that would be an issue. But it isnt. I've planted in December before, and the trees settled in perfectly.

The Honeycrisp is next to another apple. The Maxie is on its own, other pear trees are uphill and upwind. It will need pollinizer scion. I'm thinking Shinseiki, which is very vigorous. Honeycrisp will get, maybe scion from 2 or 3 varieties of apples to make it into a multigraft tree.

Tsugawa offers a veteran's discount. It's a nice gesture. I appreciated that.
