With Christmas tree farming, planting the seedlings in grids of 1000, 1200 per acre of land is easy if the Maine property is cleared, not rocky, not too hilly.

The maintenace after planting involves trimming the top, spraying for insects, and to protect the Christmas tree seedling as it grows tall and strong.

S and D ... Thanks for popping in. Land without the buildings in Maine is common too! For the same purpose but so the property buyer builds their own home.
