Planting a Tree

We chose a Jacquemont Birch to replace the tree we had cut down in the spring. Why does it seem that every job we tackle, I use the term "we" very loosely, turns into a huge project??Per instructions, the hole was dug twice the diameter of the root ball.

The area was filled with roots from the old tree. Next we need to have the old stump removed.

I hope the tree will grow strong and to its estimated 60 feet.

Nice tree! What's all the turf next to the driveway?

Yeah, that's what I mean by a huge project. The sod is from the circle around the tree.

I love planting trees, and after they grow for a few years you can comment on how just a couple years back you brought that tree home in the back of a pickup.
