Baby Butternut

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!

How lucky to find this butternut and be able to transplant it. Hope it flourishes - they are lovely trees.
