First Tree You Ever Planted
Sometimes itÃ¢ÂÂs nice to take a stroll down garden memory lane to celebrate our accomplishments through gardening and landscaping. The first tree I ever planted was an Eastern Redbud when I was 16 years old. During my teenage years, I mowed lawns for spending money. One of the people I mowed the lawn of had a large Eastern Redbud tree in her backyard. I was continuously mowing down the saplings that kept springing up around it. One particular summer I chose a 5-6" sapling and transplanted it into my parent's backyard. That tree is still there and absolutely gorgeous in the spring.
So what was the first tree you ever planted, and is it still around today?
