Trees don’t have a lot of choices about their location. Where ever the seed lands is pretty much where they will spend their life. This small spruce tree’s seed ended up in a flower bed next to our sidewalk. It was not a good place to be from our point of view, so I decided to give it a second chance.
Early spring is a good time to transplant trees, so I dug the spruce up and moved it up to a wooded area near the road and planted it in the ground up there, where hopefully it will take hold and prosper in its new location.
