Every year the Town of Fraser gives away free saplings to anyone who owns property within the town limits with the stipulation that the trees must be planted in the town boundaries of course.  So I received two aspen trees and two choke cherry trees the other week.  I put them in pots right now until they get a little bigger to withstand the elements – mainly dogs & children.

They also do a lottery for 3 foot tall spruce trees for about 15 lucky homeowners.  And what do you know – we won a beautiful spruce!!!  I just planted it last week and can’t wait for it to grow up big & tall.  As for the saplings – they should be in the ground by September.  Just not quite sure where to plant them yet…

Thanks to the Town of Fraser for this great program and to Cathleen Brown for organizing it – making Fraser more beautiful one tree at a time!
