Move Those Volunteers Now!

Every spring we have new trees volunteer all over the yard. Walnuts are so plentiful they have gained "weed" status, and of course they grow better than ones we have planted over the years. Here is a new swamp white oak seedling that we noticed and moved today. You have to leave your yard alone for a week or two when most people would be mowing, but the wait will give you free trees if you have seed sources around your yard. Use a small shovel and make a hole that matches the plug your tree is in; planting will go quickly, too.
