Future Christmas Trees?

We picked up 20 Frazer fir tree seedlings at the Cumberland County Conservation District annual tree sale and ended up planting them in a somewhat random pattern on the steep slope by the small pond.  They are still rather small and we put a lot of mulch around them so that we can “find” them and not accidentally mow them off.

Also cleaned up the elderberry patch and took out about 20 new shoots for transplanting.  These were planted around the perimeter of the small pond – where the wetlands start the and the ground is just a bit soggy.
