I planted a variety of about 25 trees along one of our property lines. The tree line is about 100 feet long and I think it will offer a nice looking privacy border. When I drive home, I notice that side of the house and just can’t stand looking at the nakedness of it. I like trees, lots of them (in case you haven’t noticed).
If anyone has seen these little pines, they know that when I planted them, there were about a foot tall. I was a little concerned that they would take 20 years to get anywhere, so I gave them a little fertilizer early this Spring. Being the impatient person that I am, I didn’t see much in the way of results.
In the past week, I started noticing some nice growth on the Colorado Blue Spruce trees. They have the most wonderful blue/green color. It is really striking…yes, striking.
I am not sure you can see it from this picture, but these trees really are beautiful. I am very happy with them.
In case you were wondering what fertilizer will do for the growth of an Eastern White Pine, just wait until the next post. I am going to run out there with the camera right now…hehe.
