Every backyard needs a tree.
Five years ago my backyard had no trees. We had just moved in and the yard was dirt. We had moved from a small property that had 22 trees jam-packed onto it. Twenty-two trees to absolutely no trees is an adjustment. It doesn’t take a trained naturalist to figure out that if you have no trees, you also have no birds, or any other engaging wildlife critters. Essentially, you are starting from scratch.
That is where I started five years ago. I started from dirt. I started from scratch.
