5 year old buck +
So last year I only had one left over from my winter growing(due to squirrels stealing my trees). I planted it at the hunting land and checked on it this weekend and it seems as if the buds on the branches were going to open up but never did, however I did see some new growth coming from the base. Does this mean anything for hardiness, or am I going to get sucker growth ever year from die back? I bent the branches and they seemed flexible still, and didn't snap so I was hoping to get the buds to make it. Guess I will try again with 5 more this year. Maybe I'll get lucky.
