Photos: Tree growth

 
 

The reason we can start thinking a little bit about building a house at the swamp is that the trees are doing great. (Real building is still probably a few decades away.)

 

Check out this quick series just to show tree growth over the years.

 

One growing season (Dec 92). I think it was this dormant season that we transplanted the best trees out into the house plan.
