Topic tags/keywords: question

I have been collecting seeds, starting them, growing trees and planting them for several decades. I like doing this and the trees I plant will be here long after I am gone. Do you plant trees?

Well I don’t collect seeds but I have good sources of seedling. I plant some every Spring and in the past 14 years I have planted about 600 trees on my property (14 acres). Mostly Douglas fir, Ponderosa Pine, Western Red Cedar, and Alder. None of them will mature before I stop exhaling CO-2 but I hope someone will appreciate them.

I don’t grow from seed. Right now I have too many trees so I’m in the thinning stage:-)) Does that count? There won’t be any if they are too thick!!

The prettiest thing about a tree is what you do with it after you cut it down :)

I planted two pears this spring and I’m thinking of planting a Butternut in the front yard and a Magnolia in the back. Figuring out where to put a peach and prickly ash will eat up the rest of my space.

...there is the wild areas that seedlings can be planted for the future generations… Many folks are planting and many more are needed to plant. When I was a Boy Scout in the 60’s we planted trees every year. I went to look for those trees a few years back and looked and looked and could not find them then realized that the trees that I was standing under was the trees that we planted all those long years ago…

maybe we could promote LJ’s getting together and planting trees in their neck of the woods…

How do you find out about stuff like this?
