Title: Korean evodia Tree
Post by: Bakersdozen on October 03, 2020, 10:18:30 am
Fall is a great time to plant trees.
Last spring a fellow beekeeper dug up a sprout from under his Korean evodia, aka Bee Bee Tree, for me.  I got it home and potted it. It has done well over the summer.  It focused on root growth rather than top growth so it's only about 10" tall. 
I called the city Arborist to ask about planting my little tree in the park next to my house.  He was very pleased and said that there were only 2 others in the city.  They are in a cemetery.  He came out and we decided where to plant it.  He will arrange for the city workers to come out and mulch it and stake it.  With out the mulch and stake the mowing team will mow it down.  The location is in a popular area next to my house and about 10 ft. from the walking path.  I planted it yesterday and I am a little concerned because it looks venerable there.  I believe they are difficult to transplant so we will see what happens. 
The 5 black locust that I planted in the park about 5 years ago are looking great!  I can't believe how they have grown.  I am hoping for blooms next spring.

It’s great your city is willing to work with you on things like this.  I’m excited to see how it develops over time.
