As I’ve mentioned probably about a thousand times now, we have a few acres of woods here. About 4.25 acres to be exact. It’s a lot of woods with very few evergreen trees – and I can’t stand that. Really, there’s nothing worse than looking at hard, cold deciduous trees all Winter long.
So like I’ve done pretty much each year we’ve been here is to order and plant about 50-100 evergreen trees. From Norway Spruce to White Pine to Canadian Hemlock. Since many of them don’t make it and since they take about twenty years to grow, I just keep ordering them and keep planting them.
My most recent order was of fifty Canadian Hemlocks and twenty five Red Maple trees. We have a hill in the front I’d like to see full one of these years as well as some of the wooded borders of the driveway. I planted most of the trees in these areas and scattered the rest through the woods. I used the Red Maples for that front hillside to offer some shade.
I took a few photos of these trees for you, since I know how much you love them.
