    Really want to plant cherry treess... however...

    Hello every one. My family and i are moving into are first real house after our first was destroyed in katrina. They are charging me with planting gardenS. Like the usualy up against the house kind and a japanese garden. I may have a green thumb but i'm no designer, i'm just the guy you call if you need to lift heavy things or dig a hole! :P

    Any way, the plants i would really LOVE to plant are some of the Japanese cherry trees. LIke the kind you see in the traditional cherry blossom veiwings. However, i am conerened if they are going to grow and bloom well where we are moving. The location is in South East Louisiana, a few miles north of Lake Ponchatrain (know i messed that up). The yard is currently being ocupied by large LARGE pines. we are removing those as one of them fell on the house during the storm, several others either snapped in half or uprooted. But the left over roots systems concern me.

    If anyone can give me any insight on if it would be ok to plant them that would be great, and if some one can tell me how long the root systems of the pines will take to rot away.

    FOrgive the spelling, it was never my strong suit and i'm more than 24 hours with out sleep from starting a new school today. GAH! :P

    I believe that the cherry trees should be just fine where you are. The best way to check is to go to local nurseries (not box stores like wal-mart or lowes/homedepot) and see if they offer them for sale if not, don't bother. The roots of the big pines may take quite some time to rot away, perhaps a year or two if you use that stuff that breaks down stumps, if not, perhaps many years.
