I woke up Saturday to fog as thick as pea soup. it came in Friday night from lake superior. I could see 15 yards. it was pretty cool
. I decided to dig some white pines I found to screen block the gawkers that sneak a peak into my place.

from 8 AM to 2:30 I dig and transplanted 30 trees and hauled 105 gallons of water. I always give them a good soak when I move them. in 5-10 years, I should have a great screen.

lots of work. threw out my back w/I the first hour. worked through it and a 2 hour walk in the forest release the nerve pain. I have great luck just working through it instead of nursing it. if I nurse it it will be a week of pain. this way I can suck it up for a day and be done. feel great today

I forgot to mention. the reason I needed to do this is because only 2 or 3 of the 50 white cedars I planted this spring survived. I've never had that poor of results. they had to be dead before I planted them.  that's only 5% survival. that's pathetic

The few trees I have transplanted, I made sure I watered them thoroughly.  Some I transplanted them twice.  Dug up some small spruces from the in laws's property, planted them at our old house, in the front yard.  They got to about 5'-6' tall, and I thought a tree poacher might think they would make good Christmas trees, especially being close to the road.  I dug them up and planted them in the backyard.  Got to about 25' tall and were beginning to grow into each other.  I had planted them 10'-12' apart.  Of course, being in our backyard I had plenty of water available when I transplanted them.  Filled the holes with water before I put the trees in, and kept them well watered, at least till that fall.  New owner eventually cut them down.
