Yearly Growth

I have 10 OP-367 trees in my garden. They are about 7 or 8 years old and are spaced about 30 inches. I started them from 2 bud cuttings (3 inches long). These trees are irrigated alongside with the rest of my garden. I water it twice a week, and I fertilize it about every 2 to 3 weeks. Every February I cut the trees down. This February I cut them down to 4 inches tall. This is what the garden look like in March 2009

On October 6, 2009 I took the picture below. The trees are now 15 ft. 6 inches tall and I know they are not done growing..

The reason I cut them is to make cuttings which I use to grow new trees. Any excess cuttings, I package and sell during the year. I get about 3000 cuttings every year from these trees.
