The land tree

The land tree arranges your land parcels on the left side of the Crop Records dialogue box. Your farming operation name appears at the top of the list and is considered the “root” of the land tree. The land parcels listed below the root are the main largest pieces of land (for example, quarters, lots, farms). The smallest pieces of land (for example, fields or concessions) are subdivided and listed below the main land parcels.
