We used the tallest trees we could purchase to line the avenida, or main roadway...the one that bisects the section that we cleared first. The rest of the trees we planted in the way we hoped nature might have planted them. We've lost some of these young trees to one thing or another and have replaced them as needed. But even with planting replacements, we seem to keep on finding new places to put more coconut trees, like those near the palapa where the sea turtles come to lay and hatch. And, of course, the trees have grown.
