Arbor Day Plantings

Did you plant trees last Arbor Day?  If you did, when did you last check on them?  It's easy to forget about young trees that we have taken so much care to plant. Just this weekend I made a visit to…Continue

Come to think of it. I helped plant a live oak at my ex-girlfriend's house a few years back. After she moved to nicer 'digs', I continued to drive by once in a while to check on the progress of the tree. The neighbors are getting paranoid, but the tree seems to be OK with it.

My tree has been potted into a one gallon pot to help it get large enough to plant in my yard!

I am so proud of the Florida Grove! With the support of all those who received trees at the Tree-Give-A-Way at the Treasure Coast Rare Fruit Club last week, the Girl Scout troop at Camp Hidden Hammock last week, Pointe West Farmers Market yesterday, Heathcote Fall Festival today, and the Stuart Green Market tomorrow, we are doing GREAT! Thank you to all the supporters and be sure to include your friends for free trees and ask them to support this great website and the Florida Grove! We are definitely making Florida greener one tree at a time!

Florida has the highest membership number but we are not in the lead in the $1000 competition. Although we have surpassed Arkansas as of now, we started out with 40+ members and I think they started out with less than 20.
It is going to be neck and neck to the finish line!

Have a Girl Scout troop coming out to Camp Hidden Hammock Saturday to plant about 48 trees. The campground lost 13 large old oaks after the '04 hurricanes, so this will help put trees back throughout the campground. The girls can bring their next generation to the camp and brag that they planted this tree and that tree. Yeah!

Here is a 1400 gallon Live Oak we planted for a client. Does that count?

Great meeting last night at TCTFCC, brought home trees for butterflies in my yard and to plant at our Montessori School. I do a planting program with the primary kids, 3-6, mostly vegetables, but they'll love planting some trees.

Hey Jan, I'd love to say I've planted lots of trees. The truth is that I've requested several to be planted in specific areas to create a buffer or challenge for our disc golf courses...but it was the 'Green-Up' program that actually got it done.
I can say that we've just completed another course design in St. Pete where not a single tree will be cut. We're hoping for some plantings but will have to see what the City of St. Pete wants to do with that.
Unlike standard (ball and club) golf, where they clear-cut fairways, we try to let the trees dictate the fairways in our disc golf courses. Here's an example of a 'natural' fairway. We cleaned out the underbrush but cut no trees.
