Planting in Ohio.

Deborah Gangloff: Yesterday, I planted 80 Buckeye seeds in pots, putting wire mesh over them to keep the squirrels from digging them up. I do this every year, for the past 10 or 15 years. When the seeds grow, I sell them, give them away, or plant them myself. My seedlings have gone to South Carolina, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, and all over Ohio. Just recently, I gave a dozen of them to an Earth Day program.

As you can see, I am dedicated to planting tees, though I'll admit I have tunnel vision on Buckeyes. I also have purchased several Johnny Appleseed trees from your Historic Tree Nursery, which are growing nicely in my orchard. I just wanted to write and let you know how much I appreciate your organization's dedication to our shared passion: planting trees!

Congratulations on your successful germination of so many buckeye seeds! Your dedication to this activity, especially over so many years, is commendable. Thank you for sharing your story with us here at American Forests. We love to hear about people whose efforts in forestry and conservation are as ardent as our own. Please keep in touch and let us know of any future projects you might undertake.

Again, congratulations and thank you for being as enthusiastic about trees as we are.
