Received 150 trees yesterday from the Missouri Department of Conservation, so I finally got to try out the new dibble bar. Got a late start due to the weather, but did manage to plant 100 of the trees in the afternoon. Finishing wouldn't have been a problem but 15 persimmons were tubed, staked and had landscape material staked out. It seems like it takes forever to do that stuff by yourself. I have to say that the dibble bar exceeded my expectations. It took a little while to get the hang of it, but once a method was figured out it's fast. Last year I used the tractor with a post hole digger and that was a pain in the rear. Believe it or not, it was way easier to plant using the dibble. For reference, the ground is a heavy soil with some clay, but was wet today. Dry, hard ground would not be fun. The bar was a Jim Gem KBC Bar that I got from Forestry Suppliers (through Amazon).
