Look what happened now...
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb
Hi and Happy Almost Weekend-
I took a break the other day and priced trees for the back yard. The tree that just fell (sniff, am still so sad its gone) was really huge and MADE the back yard. It was a gorgeous 70 + year old pecan tree. It stood tall and stately with lots of shade and tasty pecans. :(
Read about the BIG Job its turning into removing that poor tree here.
The pecan trees don't grow SUPER fast so gardener suggested I replace with another type of tree. Either faster growing or already big. I said I would think about it. I of course, I want another pecan tree. #IFightChange
We have an odd area at work that could use some trees too. But at this price I don't know. With us leaving for the summer I'm gonna have to trust someone to make sure they are watered and cared for in the blazing heat....or just more money wasted. :X
In the end I didn't purchase anything. I shall go to a nursery the next town over soon and price their trees. Perhaps they will have a nice pecan tree that wants to live by the soon to be new and improved koi pond.
Do you have a favorite tree? Or a type you have always wanted to grow?
I would love to put in fruit trees too. But the climate is not always nice to them.
Catch you later-
