Planting apple trees in the marsh
My property is on the edge of marshland and it would be more convenient to plant the apple trees in the marsh.
We never have standing water in this area but the ground is always wet. I know apple trees donÃ¢ÂÂt like wet ground so my thought was to fill in an area maybe 8 feet across and a foot tall with good quality dirt. Would the ground under the fill stay wet, and if so would it kill the tree?
The vegetation in this area is mostly grass peppered with cattails maybe 60/40 and 30 feet north itÃ¢ÂÂs solid cattails 30 feet south no cattails at all.
