Tuesday 9/2/08 moving the pine tree...

We have a pine tree planted in the back yard that we take with us every time that we move. William received it on Arbor Day from his grade school. We planted it in the yard. Soon after this we decided to move. We were outside trying to figure out which plants to take with us. William looked at his pine tree and I asked him if he wanted to take it with us. He said yes. I know that pine trees aren't usually moved, but it was still so new, so I figured that if we moved it once, at this early stage, it would be OK. We took it to the next house, and when we moved here, we dug it up again. I am guessing that we have cut the tap root so it has stayed small, about three feet tall. It is very healthy.
