In this lovely article on oak trees, the Washington Post recommended Redbud as a source for buying these wonderful native trees!
One uplifting way to mark the hardships and sorrows of a year like no other is to plant a tree.
As it grows, it will be a reminder of the time the world shut down and of those who died in the pandemic. A young tree, vigorous, aiming for the stars, also allows us to look forward and to share in its vitality.
But don’t plant just any tree. Make it an oak.
