Re: replacement tree (TX)

Great choice Pam, I love the red berries in the winter, always looks so  
festive.  They pretty much take care of themselves, and are always covered  with 
birds.  Sugar will love that.  
Glad you got your tree replacement.  I can just imagine how hard it  was to 
dig that hole.

Ended up  w/ a BIG Yaupon holly tree.  Native - lots of berries for  the
birdies.  It's as tall as I am so bigger than the mahonia I want  to shade
next summer.  Not cheap and barely got it in the car.   But it will work.
You ought to try digging a hole in clay in the 20th month  of drought.   It
took four hours.  I have  blackhaw  which is gorgeous, but not a rusty
blackhaw.  Tossed a couple of  handfuls of worm castings in the hole.  It
should thrive.  Took  an hour and a half to dig out all the dead roots.  My
poor  back.
