These pics are of some of the trees I've been planting. I have 137 in the ground so far with 168 to go. They are seedlings so it's kind of hard to get a view of the extent of the planting.
I find it humorous how some of my neighbors have reacted to my planting these trees. Most comments have been negative. Interesting how people tend to think....negative first then perhaps the positive side gets a chance. Of course all of theses trees will not survive, but there is a very good chance many will! Just like in running you have to start somewhere! I remember the first run I took when I began running back in the late 70's. I went out the back door of Moms house and ran as hard as I could for about a block. I thought I'd throw up! From that point on I began to grow in my knowledge and experience. Just like planting these trees I have a lot of knowledge and experience with forestry so I can't wait until these babies are taking root!
I'll show 'em! I have been thinking about the dog that I hit yesterday. I really feel bad about it, I wonder how he'll respond to me today as I go by? I'd like to make friends with him.
