Woo Hoo!! 77 new White Pines planted!
Well, the temp was nice and the sun out for the first time in a week today! Even though the wind was BRUTAL! So DH and I got out this afternoon and planted 77 of my White Pine seedlings that I got from SC Forestry. I ran a line about 4 ft. to 5 ft. apart, yes a little close but I want a hedge from this. I ran it down both sides where my property is the most shallow. And placed it so it defines and closes in my actual yard area as well as line part of my drive way coming up to the house. I also defined several areas for my future beds and trellises. May I let all my fellow South Carolina residents know, SC Dept. of Forestry did me really good. The seedlings were beautiful healthy little trees. I purchased the 2 year old White Pine. I'm very pleased with the quality of the new trees! These guys are a fantastic resource! So my privacy hedge project is off to a great start!! Oh boy, am I going to be sore tomorrow!!
