ooooooooooooooooo Canada!



I had a nice Maple tree coming up in my flower bed soooo rather than cut it off or pull it out by the roots... I decided to transplant it into our yard to replace the one taken down by the storm two years ago. I didn't want to piss off our Canadian friends.

I need to find another one so by the time I retire I can string up a hammock between them!

Maple trees are slow growing, but remain strong and productive during their long lifespan. I have several in my yard that are approx 100 years old. Some I've had to cut down after they were infested with carpenter ants, but the rest stand strong against the storms. Speaking of mowing around trees, I shortened my grass today, with lots of "mow-arounds".

We lost the big old Maple and it is really missed. Carpenter ants got to it and the storm took it down. We got a bunch of good firewood outta it. I will enjoy watching it grow knowing when I planted it
