Growth of Leyland, Green Giant and Cryptomeria in one year
I thought someone might find this interesting:
We planted a row of evergreens along our fence line last year. About this same time last year, I took pictures of the whole line and pieced them together. The first picture, left to right: Leyland, Leyland, Green Giant, Green Giant, Cryptomeria. We bought varying sizes, picking them up here and there. It has been really interesting to see how they grew - and I did learn that if you plant a small tree, it will catch right up to the larger ones in no time!
Second year, left to right (we made a couple of changes in the lineup early this spring): Emerald Green, Emerald Green, Leyland, Green Giant, Green Giant and Cryptomeria.
Notice especially how quickly the small Leyland caught the Green Giants. We have a row of Leylands in the backyard too, and even the smallest one has caught up to the largest one we planted.
GROW, TREES, GROW!!!
