One Canadian Hemlock Tree Lost (2019)


Another week and (sadly) another tree is lost in our yard.  Just last week, I shared the news of one of our Earth Day 2018 trees - a Weeping Flowering Cherry Tree - died this season.  Today, you can see in the photo above, that we've lost one of our small Canadian Hemlock trees that I planted on the North side of our property out back.

This is the seventh tree I've lost since planting and the second of this season.

The other six trees that have died are:

Other "Lost" trees include: a Chanticleer Pear, a Dawn Redwood, a Corkscrew Willow, a Fraser Fir, a Canadian Hemlock, Weeping Flowering Cherry. And now *this* Hemlock.  This means it is the second Canadian Hemlock that I've planted that has died.  

The dead (or mostly dead) Hemlock in the photo above is the one on the far right of the photo in this post.  The other five of them seem to be doing well with all of them showing both a little stress and some new growth.

Here's the full list of trees that we've put into the yard since we bought the property in 2016 and moved in during the Summer of 2017. 35 trees planted. 28 trees currently alive and adding to our landscape.   That puts our 2019 net at +8 so far.

1. Flowering Pear in backyard on north side.
2. Flowering Pear in front yard by garage. (LOST and replaced)
