    I placed my first ADF order!

    I finally placed my first order through the Arbor Day Foundation. Because of the late shipping dates in fall, I was reluctant to order anything, but I think this is the perfect time to get them--Just as all the other trees are budding and the leaves are about ready to burst out.

    I ordered a variety that I will be planting here at home and at our cabin:

    1 White oak (It is really only experimental in zone 3, but I have a good spot for it)

    4 Canadian hemlock--this will, again, be mostly experimental. They don't tend to like our scant precipitation, but I plan on planting it on the east side of the house where it is shaded during the heat of the day.

    4 Norway Spruce--These I will plant for their fast growth

    2 Hackberry-- I really wanted Elm (since DED has been scant here and they still grow in the wild and line our streets), but since they're so hard to find, Hackberry is a sort of good alternative: Fast growing, vase shaped

    1 Honeylocust-- I'm going to plant this next to our deck because it will lightly shade it.

    1 American Mountain Ash-- This I'm planting at our cabin. Our cabin is often cool and shady and the soil is moist, so I expect it should do well there (with a cage around it, of course).

    Pee Gee Hydrangea-- They're very pretty for corner plantings

    I'll have to keep you updated on how they all grow.

    Elm seedlings are one of my worst weed problems! I've got about a half dozen large Elms that seed profusely. I'm not sure if there are any undispersed seeds left on them, but if there are any, I'll send you some. The seedlings are all over the place on my property and they grow disturbingly fast. It sounds like you're too far away or I'd tell you to grab a shovel and take all you want!

    Buffalo's not zone 3, is it?!?!

    (I'm assuming the 716 on your name is your area code?)
