We bought 3 spruce trees to plant in our yard. They were about 5 to 6 feet tall and came with easy to plant instructions!! Well you know that never turns out as planned. Our son started out helping then he got a call to help a neighbor that had his combine stuck, but wait another neighbor is driving by yes he's stopping! He digs right in and in no time the tree is planted. One down 2 to go. Its late so they wait til tomorrow. Then it's just me and the one that wanted the trees in the first place!! So here we go one more done the 3rd got planted later that day. They do look nice. We both love trees so the backache and sore neck will fade to black!
