Watching Barkslip's pecan and hickory trees grow

These were shipped to me almost 5 months ago and promptly planted. They haven’t been fertilized yet, but will give them some liquid fertilizer tomorrow. Grainger has two buds expanded but not yet opened. The other three trees have new growth up to 6 inches or a bit more.

The leaves have darkened up quite a bit after putting some fertilizer on them 2 days ago. I’ll keep them growing vigorously as long as I can during the spring and early summer so they will be well established for next winter.
