Our New Tree

For many years we had a small, misshapen Asian Plum tree in the middle of the lawn. It finally succumbed a few years ago and we removed it. We missed having a tree in that location, and this Spring decided to do something about it. But we didn’t just want to get the typical little starter “stick” nursery tree that would take years to grow big enough to provide any shade. So a few weeks ago we went to Big Trees Today and picked out a nice Emerald Queen Maple. They delivered and planted it this past Friday, and we’re thrilled with how it looks. It’s leafed out quite a bit since when we saw it, and looks bigger and nicer now that it’s away from the other trees at the tree farm. As you can see in the picture, RuairĂ­’s a fairly tall guy, and it towers over him.
