    Bee Bee trees doing well

    I planted these from seedlings on August 1st. They were 3-4" tall then and now the tallest one is over 2 ft.
    I cut the bottom out of a 5 gallon bucket and placed them over the seedings for wind and rabbit protection. I dust the trees with gardening lime periodically.

    Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. Maybe in 12 months you can post new pictures so we can see how they are growing?

    Very nice. I got some seeds the first of last month. Put them in the fridge for a lil over a month now to simulate winter and i am going to plant them this week. Hope mine are as successful as yours.

    The trees look like they are doing very well. I see they have the dark red branches and leaves have good healthy color in your Sept. pics. Good idea with the bucket for protection. I see they made it through winter nicely and your getting leaf so that's great. You should see 4ft feet of growth this season and perhaps a bit more.

    Very good...inspires me to pluck a few of those suckers instead of mowing them over...

    Thanks! The place I got them from (Oregon) said I should fertilize them and recommended a slow release fertilizer. I just use horse and chicken poop.

    Your Bee Bee Trees are looking great! Mine didn't survive the winter. I guess my attempts to keep it water weren't enough. We had a very mild, but dry winter.

    Don't give up on them yet, I have Bee Bee tree seedlings still just coming out of dormant state, although most have already. They do need regular watering over winter months to keep the roots healthy. I have them for sale in the for sale section of forum if anyone is interested in these trees.

    Out of 5 the only 1 that didn't survive was the one I brought in for the winter. The dog knocked the first 4 inches off the top and it hasn't sprouted this year like the other 4. I plan on getting more of these trees to plant in my forest. The loggers came through 2 summers ago and opened up the canopy so it gets lots of sun now.

    On edit: Before chucking that 5th tree I looked really closely near the base and darned if that thing isn't sprouting green buds.....ITS ALIVE....
