Attempting to diversify forest

There is some new forest on the south west side of my plot. The forest grew on an abandoned field. It is still young and missing many typical local tree species. I decided to plant some oaks on open spaces. Young oaks need shade and protection from wind. I planted little large leaf oak tees under protection of large buckthorn bushes.

To plant  red oak acorns  I used pallets standings vertically.
