To find the number of plants required to set an acre by the quincunx method, ascertain from the above tables the number required at the given rectangular distances, and then increase the number by one-half.
The real quincunx planting places a tree in the center of the square. The trees cannot all be equal distance apart. The so-called quincunx that places all trees at equal distances is only the square method run-ning diagonally across the field.
