1. There is a dispute about when the land between the trees is acquired by the buyer of three trees.
2. Rava: We rule that if there are 4 to 16 Amos between each tree, the land is acquired (in #1).
3. The Gemara explains how the distance between the trees is measured.
4. The Gemara discusses unusual sales of three trees, and whether they include the land between them.
5. The Gemara discusses sales of three trees when there are things that interrupt between the trees.
A BIT MORE
1. One opinion is that the land between the trees is acquired only when there are 4 to 8 Amos between each tree. Another opinion is that the land between the trees is acquired only when there are 8 to 16 Amos between each tree.
2. However, if there are less than 4 Amos between each tree or more than 16, no land between the trees is acquired by the buyer. In such a case, the buyer is deemed to have bought only the trees and does not own even the land that the tree is on (i.e., in case it dies, he may not plant another tree).
3. It is not measured from the widest point of the tree trunk of the tree (usually at the bottom) nor the thinnest part before it branches out, but rather from the midpoint of the base of the tree.
4. For example, if a person sells two trees from his land together with one tree that he owns on his friend's land that is nearby, do we say that the buyer receives any land between the trees or not? The Gemara leaves this question unanswered (Teiku).
5. For example, the Gemara asks whether the buyer receives land if there is a stream or public domain on the land between the trees. The Gemara leaves this question unanswered (Teiku).
