Well folks, it’s that time of year again. The time of year that I start thinking about Spring.
I know I have explained my obsession with trees in the past. It’s not such a bad obsession to have I guess. I mean, I am planting trees and that’s good for the air. It’s good for a bunch of other things too.
This year, I decided that adding a little green to the property would be nice. I am getting a little tired of looking at all the boring brown of the deciduous trees we have. There are tons of them and sprinkling some evergreens around would really make me smile.
I have been looking at places to buy bare root evergreens online for a while. In the past, I got all my trees from Arbor Day, but they are getting a little pricey and the trees are really small. I knew there were some better alternatives out there.
After going back and forth between two websites, I settled on NurseryMan.com. Why? I don’t know…I like the guy. Also, he includes shipping and all that right in the price. I hate being nickeled and dimed with shipping fees.
< I got 100 Norway Spruce trees for $190. That's not bad considering they are not those tiny little 6 inch seedlings. They are a few years old and between 10 and 16 inches tall. They actually seem larger in his instructional tree planting videos. Check them out here. Also, just look at those fields. I would be in heaven if I ran that place. I think I would go out and pet all those trees every day.
so, you might be asking yourself, “What in the world are you going to do with 100 Norway Spruce trees you crazy fool?” Well, 100 trees may seem like a lot, but I am sure I can find places to put them. Also, we are sitting on over 4 acres here, so any extras can find homes in the woods. I won’t have any extras though.
Okay, see ya in the Spring.
