Did you ever plant trees?

Did you ever plant trees? What kinds of trees do you like best? Do you have trees in your garden or courtyard? I have some fruit trees, which were planted when we moved in. In fall, I ask my relatives and friends to share. They taste good without any chemicals.

Hi there friend. I have planted smaller plants, and a magnolia a few years back and helped with the planting and cleaning of my high school, and junior high school yards. I can't say that i am good at this, or that i know the trees very well, but i did feel good knowing i helped nature even for a little bit.

Yes, I have planted trees. I have been trying to get some cheap fruit trees, but the only place around that had them at a decent price I refuse to shop at. Most I've found cost more than thirty dollars and I don't know anyone who will give me sapling fruit trees. We have some apple trees out back already and cherry hedges, but I'd like to add pears and other fruit.

There are alot of trees in my yard. I have two pear trees, four pine trees, 3 oak trees, and two maple trees. I also have holly bushes in the front of the house. Lots of shade in the summer and leaves in the fall. I rent my house and they were all here when I moved in. I did plant a black locust tree when I was six. My mom just had to have it cut down because it was starting to die. It was 46 years old. Sounds silly but I miss that tree when I go to her house.

It is difficult to get fruit trees to grow here in Canada. But there can be some plum, apple, and pear trees that seen to do okay. For us though we have planting a few pine tree saplings here. I wouldn't want to eat them though. LOL I go garden, but the season is short. I will grow bean, tomatoes, cucumbers and stuff that seem to do okay.
