Trees Glorious Trees

Garden, Weber Wonderland / Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Now that we are in our forever home, surrounded by land and woods we are going to start reforesting with new trees.

My brother told me about the Erie County Conservation Tree and Shrub Seedling Sale which makes it easy AND CHEAP to buy lots of trees! (Can you say about $1 a piece?) Of course we took full advantage of the sale this year. We have a TON of work to do in our woods the next few years, clearing and cutting, however we want to get started on reforesting with profitable wood as soon as possible. Equity. Someday our future children will thank us…also yes, I did just say the words “profitable wood” and laughed like a teenage boy.

Our 2014 loot includes:

2 Black Cherry
2 Butternut
10 Black Walnut
2 Chinquapin Oak
2 Hazelnut
2 Pin Oak
2 Red Oak
10 Sugar Maple
10 Streamco Willow

2 American Larch
2 Blue Spruce
2 Douglas Firs
2 Fraser Fir
2 Norway Spruce
4 White Pine

12 Elderberry
2 Raspberry
2 Serviceberry

2 Beautyberry Bush
2 Butterfly Bush
4 Lilac Bush
2 Ninebark

10 Rugusa Rose

Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
