Tree spacing in raised beds

10 years ago

I am an elementary teacher and hope to get a bunch of small (bareroot probably from Arbor Day) trees for students to grow for the next couple of years and then transplant on the grounds and in the community. We have some raised beds that were build last year and I'm planning to use those. My questions are:

1) What kind of spacing should I plan to leave between each tree?

2) Are there things I should be specifically thinking about to ensure they successfully grow?

3) How much care would they need during the summer?

4) Would it be best to start them this spring or in the fall?
