Conifer Establishment

16 years ago

Several months ago, I purchased a new home, and I have been in the process of removing dead/dying trees (mainly ash trees) and planting new ones. I have planted trees such as Pseudolarix amabilis, Pseudotsuga menziesii 'glauca', Abies nordmanniana, Abies homolepis, Cedrus deodora 'shalimar' and Ilex aquifolium. They vary in size from 6" to 6'. As a general rule, what is the "establishement" time for conifers so that they can grow at the optimal rate, given the proper conditions? Is this time dependent on the size of the tree when it was planted? Any comments would be appreciated.
