A butternut must have fallen under one of the boards on the way into the barn. It was positively identified by a butternut expert from the Rideau Valley Conservation Area.
We decided to transplant it. We were advised that if it was under 3 years old it wouldn't have a tap root and would be easy to move. I thought it was 1-2 years old...and I guess I was right.
We moved it to a nice spot.
Richard dug a hole.
And we planted it. Sure hope it grows!
