I recently bought 20 acres of land that used to be farmed. It had avocados on it and the farm manager (who will remain namelesSP) decided to bulldoze 20 acres of mature avocado trees into the ditch. Anyway whats done it done and its now got some pretty severe rutting as a result of the dozing. I intend to replant it in some sort of HD hass and reeds. I'll pry go 15X15 on the hass and 10X10 on the reeds. The soil is a bit of an odd mix of clay and DG.

So I've got to bulldoze again to get the ruts taken care of I remember seeing a picture of the bulldozed ridges that Chilean growers were using for new plantings. I just can't find the picture now! I was hoping to give it to my dozer guy and have him copy it. I'm also going to take delivery of a ton of LA-green waste mulch and cover everything I can before the winter comes. 1000 Dusa trees on order for Spring! Aiming for organic, hoping that the Dusa rootstock combined with proper irrigation techniques and humic acid apps will keep the root rot away.

Anyone know where that picture is?!?

Thanks!
