    I planted about 50 trees in my yard. Oak, Elm, Cottonwood, Pine, Ash, eucalyptus, Olive, Appel, pear, orange, Mesquete, and more. I like trees. I like shade.

    Yeah, I've planted plenty of trees. The most recent were a few willow, cherries and I want to put some apple, pear and plum trees in my garden this year.

    I've also done a lot of coppicing and taken out the nasty hybrid, non-native conifers people keep planting in gardens (Leyland). It's always good to replace one of those with a nice native species.

    Since then I also planted a peach (which failed), took and rooted cuttings off the willow and ended up with a few more and this year I'm trying out Paulownia tormentosa in my new garden as it's meant to grow very fast and I want some trees established pretty quickly. It probably won't grow as fast as it can here in England though as it grows fastest at temperatures above 25 degrees. I've got it in the greenhouse at the moment as that hits 25c most days and I want it to get as tall as possible before I plant it out.

    I tried to grow a lemon tree once from lemon seeds in a potted ivy plant. A short stem grew and two leaves and it died. The ivy also died.

    Yes , unfortunately .

    Around the age of 10 years I picked many chestnut from a horse-chestnut tree in the backyard at fall
    and planted approx. 30-50 of them in the backyard in a double row .

    A visit of a commercial tree growing small company inspired me to do such.

    One chestnut I planted in a ceramic pot on the window's bench .
    That one I fed too much artificial fertilizer brought from our farm ;
    and it soon died therefore .

    The other ones survived and when we moved to another town ,
    we transferred them to our farm .

    When they were around 10 years old , I planted them on both sides
    of a mud way of our farm .

    I had put drainage tubes around the lower end of the log (Stamm) so they
    will not be nagged by hares, canines and small deers .

    The deers ate many of the sprigs though ...
    But the trees grew still .

    Now the farm had been sold without telling me ,
    and I hate myself for planting them ;
    also because the Germans in my State are not worth these,
    rapefugee-coddlers as they are to 90% .

    Probably the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hors...nut_leaf_miner
    could do the job , but these horse-chestnuts are still resistant and are still
    growing normal in the spring season ;
    and reading the German wikipedia about the chestnut moth ,
    it appears , that there are solution available to suppress the vermin,
    but I have not seen any appliances here in a Social Democrats governed City of >200 thousand inhabitans.
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    I planted four apple trees on a farm I was working on, around three years ago. Never seen them since, and some times think about how they are doing nowadays.

    I would have liked to plant more trees, especially to help establish more deciduous forests around where I live. One mostly just see pine and spruce forests around here. Forests containing only one type of deciduous tree really creates a special atmosphere, as well as providing valuable woodworking material.

    I've planted both Acacia and Deciduous trees of various varieties on our property. Some provide beautiful flowers during the early Summer months.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.

    I have planted many trees since childhood. I have left many trees behind to never know what has come of them, but that happens when you grow and move. I fought wildland fire for some years and after fire season and the ground cooled a year or two later, I was able to get on with the tree planting crew to replace what was burned. I eventually aged out of those jobs as my back could not handle the demands of the body. I am proud of all I have done though.

    The last tree planted here on the property, is for our beloved English Bulldog who passed away a week after I came to see her in April. We also have a nice small solar powered flower that lights up a pretty, cool blue in the evening and remains on until morn; it glows reflective onto the little tree which is doing quite well now we put protection around it so the deer don't eat it. Someday it will be large enough to protect itself, but until then, we guard it with love. We surely miss her.

    Yeah, I've planted many little cherry trees in the garden of my grandparents since I was a child. This is because when I ate cherries from the big cherry trees there, I was always too lazy to put the cherry pits in the wastebin, so I just spit them on the ground and then the little trees came out everywhere. Some of them are so big already they have many cherries themselves in summer.
