Painting trunks white
Hi all, my trees have been in the ground for five, four, three and two years, with five new trees arriving this spring. I have never painted a trunk white, as I really like the look of natural bark in my small private orchard. All of the 'pick your own orchards' in my area have no white trunks.
Am I missing something important that should be done? Painting the trunks white? thanks, Mrs. G
PS My orchard faces south (its primary sun direction) gets sun from 9am to 4pm.) all summer long.
