This is a Kelco TP-300 Tree Planter, with a utility trailer. It can plant trees in sod or cultivated soil. The planter is connected by a three-point hitch and can be pulled with a minimum 20 hp tractor. It can plant seedlings, or trees up to three feet in height. The planter comes with either a four foot or a five foot spacer wheel. If you have neglected planting trees because of the back-breaking work required by a dibble bar, this is your answer. Easily towed on its 4’ X 8’ utility trailer. Requires 1 7/8” tow ball. It may be rented from the Putnam County Soil Conservation District.
