fruit tree spacing ?

Post by supersalman » September 22nd, 2016, 6:55 pm

AOA,
I have a 150x120 feet plot (total 80 Marla) in Lahore and like to plant fruit trees.

litchi, guava, mango, kinno, fruter, banana, lemon.

i will be arranging each tree type in 150-feet line.

1- please tell me how much space between each tree type should be ?
2 - Is there any other tree suggestion for Lahore climate ?

Thank you for your replies.
:)

15 feet distance between each tree minimum.. always buy good quality and grafted plants, they may be expensive but they are worth it...

A nice size plot for a house and a reasonable garden, but too small for what you have in mind.
It appears you have no idea of what you are dreaming, and no experience of fruit orchards.
DETAILS IF DESIRED.

So you did not like my comments and others are too modest to comment
I have a long experience of fruit orchards. My latest adventure on only 1000 Marlas in Thokar Niaz Baig Multan Road Lahore.
It used to be part of my ancestral Mango garden over 30 Acres, both sides of Multan Road.
In the late 90s the area was urbanized, declared residential and water supply from the canal was cut off. The mango trees were cut and I planted various fruit trees in my 1000 Marlas.

As of April 2005

Today the concrete has overtaken the trees.

And what is left would soon be gone.
Tree plantation is not the same as the annuals.
I am open to discussion.

Pictures worth a thousand marlas, each.
