Re: was plant sale now trees


When I design for folks, I always try to include a few "legacy trees". So
often, a homeowner with a bare lot only wants something fast growing like a
Maple, or (shudder) a Bradford Pear. It's hard, sometimes, to convince them
of the value of planting for the future. Sad.
