This should have happened sooner. Yesterday afternoon I went to the grand opening of the Neighborwoods program to plant three Susie Forest trees. Then I spied a group of bicyclists coming across the street and in the midst were three bicycles with trailers carrying the trees. After all the tree plantings for the Susie, the bicyclist’s forest, it’s about time for an appropriate delivery. I loved it! The base of each tree rested in the trailer, the trunk was propped on a plastic barrel and the branches and leaves waved proudly in the rear.
The planting site, which just lost its asphalt covering, was only ready for one tree. So we planted the tulip tree and the linden and hornbeam will have to wait. It was a fun planting.
