    The guys that trimmed the trees along my 1/4 mile frontage were very considerate, neat, professional, and took care not to butcher anything. They took pride in their work.

    These Bee Bee Trees are entering their 3rd season. They are between 6-8 feet tall.

    These Bee Bee Trees are the ones John shipped to me last September right before hurricane Sandy. Three out of four are sprouting leaves. The fourth may just be a late bloomer.

    These are Bartlett and Kieffer pear trees I got from Arbor Day Foundation last fall:

    From the pic above you can see the late frost turned the leaves very light colored.
    The trees have since rebounded with new deep green growth and I think one may have it's first buds...??

    Eddy, those sure are buds. I'd recognize them anywhere. Mine have not opened yet and it's a bit late as they usually have by now here. I bet the bees will take notice of those buds very soon, even if they still haven't opened.

    That's a really great progress. I wonder how's the tree doing right now.
