Thuja Wintergreen Seedlings

Moved nine this morning to a hillside I've had difficulty establishing firs and spruce. These are the largest seedlings of 34 I grew from seed of cultivar 'Wintergreen'; seed collected at Bickelhaupt Arboretum 2007.

#105 - this is a beautiful seedling. It's feathery/has a soft look. This one I added to my cultivar planting - not to the hillside.

Beautiful conifers. The best for screening.

I agree hardheartedly Dave. I'm buying American man.

Never tipped the cart. Not going to tip the cart. These seedlings all are noticeably different, then again, I look for the detailing. To someone whom doesn't appreciate trees they might not look different at all. These look like American arborvitae all the way. Nothing like Green Giant's. I'll defer that I must of been having an off day when I said that.

Nice stuff, Dax, and I agree that #105 is a very nice one.

Do you build a dam on the downslope side of the trees?

RE: Thuja Wintergreen Seedlings

No I didn't Tommy. I know how my ground settles though so I plant at a height that I know the plants will not settle beneath the soil line. It's just experience talking. Other folks should probably go with the dam.

Have a great day.

Great looking plants. Hey I can even see the difference in them. :) Now in separate posts I probably couldn't other than a couple, but here there are some definite differences.
