i got up early and went to lowe's to get my free tree. dh works til 4 and i figured they would be out of them by then so i went early. they are only giving away one million. i figure considering all the stores across the nation and canada if they are up there too that one million trees divided into so many stores that our little store wouldn't have many. i figured there would be lots of people there but there weren't. i was right about not many to give away tho they only had 3 boxes of sapplings .

i'm excited, cuz we bought 2 spruces 2yrs ago and planted them but we moved shortly afterward. we took the trees with us and they were doing great. i had to leave them at my mil's for a few months. i put them where they would do just fine but she moved them out into the full sun and never watered them so they died. mil killed my baby trees after i had spent a year nursing them. i was pissed but nothing i could do. we bought a house last summer but most of the trees are dead from neglect so i'm excited  to get the free tree. dumb i know but i love trees and plants and i can't wait for it to get big enuf to move outside and plant in the ground..

I wanted to go but didn't. What kind of tree did you get?

We are having more arborvitaes put in this Spring. Every year we plant new trees. Last year my husband got me a beautiful weeping cherry.

we planted a baby tree at my mils house about 5 years ago.  We babied that tree too.  She is losing her house now and we are really sad because we worked so hard on that entire back yard.  We surrounded the tree with beautiful grey rocks.  A few days after we planted it, our dog pulled it out and dragged it across the yard.  We put it back, put the rocks back and another 3 days later, a weed grew out of the hole where she chewed on the trunk.  LOL so we had to dig that out.  Somehow the tree thrived completely and is now taller than her house.
