My Dad and I planted from 9am-11am in a mixed precipitation weather day. Yes, some snow in April. We then went to the Sabres playoff game (afternoon game, kind of weird) against the Bruins. They lost 5-3 but it was some intense playoff hockey. The series is tied at 1. GO SABRES! Because you need to get the trees in asap we came back after the game and planted for another 2 hours. All in all today we planted somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 trees so far. It was snowing pretty hard by the time we finished. We were beat. More planting scheduled for after work tomorrow. It was a great way to spend the day with my Dad while Sarah was out of town.We have these trees that will be here forever to remember the day by. Thanks Dad, for all your help. I will post more photos of the actual trees in the ground as soon as I take some photos. For now these photos are of what 170 trees look like all bundled together. It was a huge amount of work. I will also post the plan and map of the property where all the trees are.
Earth day is coming up soon so this felt good to do this. So in honor of that I encourage all of you to plant something or start recycling if you don't do so already.
