Big Mac...

Below is a picture that Hardings sent me a few years ago showing how they prep a site for planting...

Obviously a lot of clean up work went into that, and then a tractor was used to disk it up (looks like to me anyway). Also looks like (based on white powder seen around base of trees) that he put down something like lime, bonemeal or fertilizers of some kind (probably again with tractor broadcast).

The obvious catch to being able to do that is your hillside would have to be workable by a tractor (not too steep).

Below is a picture of the results...

Hope this helps.

PS... if I planted 60 lbs of seed manually in one fall... that would kill me :-)

Remember, the more you disturb the soil, the more disease you will have.

Lenno is right.

I know of a ginseng seeder designed for wild simulated playing. However, I can't personally mention it here because of the site rules.

I looked at it and there's no doubt it would work well but planting 60lbs of seed I just don't think planting 1 seed at s time is going to be fast enough to get that much in the ground...I'm always thinking outside the box I have come up with what I think is efficient idea..but thanks for the reply sir.

You should start some efforts toward maintenance and time management in how you will take care of it all 6 years down the road. First year is easy, second is twice as hard and the third, well, you get the idea. I don't know your density but disease will be an issue, if your there often enough, you'll see it. If your not in it often you will just see it disappear and open patches taking its place. If a seedling makes it through the first part of spring it's usually in good shape for the rest of the year. As years go by and the plants grow, that's when other issues come into play. I'm not a bearer of bad news but you should be sure to be ready.
Good luck.
