Austrian Pine - $75 (Falcon Heights)

Love this tree

Purchased at Gertens in 2022 late summer

It’s flourished beautifully on a really tough corner, wind and cold coming across a field at it. These are tough trees
It’s grown at least 18” in that short of a time. There is a big Linden nearby that I think is making it shift it’s growth a little. Will straighten out as it grows. I did not fertilize it to make that fast growth. Shouldn’t fertilize for a couple years, at least, to prevent too much top growth and not good root growth.

It’s going to get too big for this spot and I have no other good spot for it :(

Paid substantially more for it full price. I needed a tough tree and this one was really attractive. I goofed.

$75 It’s been in the ground since fall 2022 so should be easy to transplant w/o damaging the roots and it’s close to the street.

Birds love these for nesting. Has a cute cowbird nest in it that was fun to watch close up last year, the eggs and then the babies.
