Determine the width and length of the area you want to cover with plants. We will assume an orchard with a width of 240 m and a length of 320 m.
Decide on the spacing between the plants. Note that this is the spacing between the centers of the plants. So if you plan for your trees to grow, leave some extra space for it!. We will assume the spacing of 3.5 m.
The plant spacing calculator will tell you how many plants you need in a rectangular and a triangular grid – here, 6269 for a rectangular grid and 7239 for triangular spacing.
Now simply choose one of these options and start planting! 🙂
Notice that you can also use the plant spacing calculator to find the spacing. For example, let’s assume you want to plant 3000 trees in a rectangular grid of the same area. According to our calculator, you need a spacing of 5.06 m if you want the network to be regular.
