spacing for fruit trees in a hedgerow

Zone milton freewater , Oregon umatilla county | gardenforgood1980 added on March 11, 2015 | Answered

For plum, cherry, peach, nectarine, and Asian pear trees, what is the best spacing? What would be the best order to plant all these trees in a hedgerow? I have a pretty lengthy hedgerow and would like to place all my new fruit trees in the hedgerow but am unsure of what the best planting order would be.

The ordering of the trees can be any configuration you want so long as you put enough space between them when you plant them. Also, be sure of the pollination characteristics of your fruit trees so you are sure you have the right number and variety of fruit trees in your orchard. Some fruit trees are self-pollinating, others are cross-pollinating.
