RE: Heronswood

Boy do I fully believe that!  The pines we planted out front were not but a
foot tall.  The pines we planted out back were 6-7' tall.  ALL of the pines
in the front have thrived.  Of the 5 we planted out back only two have made
it and only one is really thriving.  I'd say that is pretty good evidence.

And of course, what they don't tell the consumers is that larger plants take
longer to recover.  The standard rule of thumb is that it takes as many
years for a tree to recover from transplanting as it is old.

So if you plant a ten year-old tree, it's going to take ten years for it to
be back at 100% and will need to be coddled that much longer.
