Question tree growing

Does anyone else have a passion for growing trees just to watch them grow?

Yes, kinda. I've been unsuccessful two years running trying to grow bonsai from seed. My local plant seller told me it's a very difficult process and I'd be better off buying an already growing sapling tree.

Off course I was using planting kits with seed packets. I'm sure the seeds were of poor quality. Next autumn I'm doing what I should have done and gone to the source; a wood, a park, or ... cemetery.

Some trees can be a bit tricky to grow. If you can mimic what would happen to them in there natural habitat is your best bet. And some can take months to years to sprout. If you collect seeds. Collect them soon after they drop from a tree an try to grow them when nature would. What kind of trees do you want to grow?

Yes.
I was thinking about dumping this years seed tray in the bin. But then maybe I'll leave it be. The seeds were cherry blossom.
As for what trees to grow, I'm now betting that local trees will prove easier to seed
than foreign climate trees. Which gives me several months to do more serious research.

Cherry can be tricky. There shell is really thick. Nature designed the cherry to eaten and go threw the digestive tract of an animal it almost needs to do that so the digestive system breaks down the shell. But it never hurts to try anyway. The easiest way to see if your seeds are good or bad, put them in water,give them a few hours and whatever seeds are flouting are bad,the one's that sink are good. Any type of maple tree are a good place to start. There real easy to grow.

Last night i started a bunch of seeds, "honey locust" the unofficial tree of protection, and some "temple junipers". I also have 4 baby joshua trees that just sprouted.

Every year I'll put my name in to get 25 free saplings from a state program. This year I have 25 Beech tree's on order in addition to the free trees, just need to find a way to keep the deer from eating them all.

I do like watching my plants grow. They help me in my small apartment clean out the stuffy air so I make sure to treat them well ;)

I suppose it has been my lifelong project to plant and grow trees. I purchased my cleared farm and over the years have replanted it with trees. It is certainly something to see the landscape transformed back to an arcadia. Some of the trees are now well over 120 feet tall.
