My name is Mike Meixler. I live in concho, Az which is high and dry in
temperate desert. Plenty of cold winter with snow and hot summers. low
rainfall with 10-12 inches
about half during the monsoons and half to snowfall. I currently have
about 70 acres under irrigation where I raise grass fed beef in a
rotational grazing scheme.
I planted about 100 honey locust trees on a permaculture swale the
captures my irrigation tailwater and they seem to be thriving.
I want to plant about 30 -40 acres of hillsides with honey locust
strips on swales to capture runnoff with strips of pasture in between
to grazw with elec. fence. Can anyone
steer me where I can get seeds or young trees to plant? I ordered
some from lawer nursery in MT but recently found out that many of the
trees have been bred to
throw off less pods rather than more.
