I've been looking for some white pines to plant. We currently have only one white pine in our yard. It was the Christmas tree from the year we moved in to our house in December of 1983. It was about four feet tall then but now it's pushing 50 feet tall. It's a low maintenance tree that's beautiful year round.
Today during my break from writing, I decided to see what I could find on the Internet. I found several sources in Ohio and Pennsylvania with decent prices, but shipping from both places was expensive.
I scanned on down the list until I came upon a link for Arbor Day. I smiled as I read because when you join the Arbor Day Foundation, they send you 10 seedings.
That was a no brainer for me, so I joined an organization that I love. In return, they're sending me a Tree Guide to help me identify trees, and 10 white pines.
We have a gig Friday night so when Jilda got home we practiced before dinner.
When she asked if anything interesting happened today, I told her we were now proud members of the Arbor Day Foundation and that white pines were in the mail. You can color us both happy.
