Yep - that looks like MN all right: pure white!

Here's what it looks like in KY these days - where men plant trees, and most of them are good-looking.

That's Scott, second from left (no, not the Catalpa)...

Hey VV, Welcome!
Yeah, it's VERY white here in MN. It will be June before all of the snow melts this year. I am so sick of winter I could pu...

Great photo! You're still wearing jackets so it isn't exactly balmy in KY at the moment. That makes me feel a little better!

I have to ask Dave about making changes to the look of the forums. I am on a Mac and the background color adjustment tools, etc., that folks have been telling me are here, don't show up on my Mac.

Anyway, good to have you here!
Mike

When planting balled and burlaped (B&B) or potted trees, it is important to plant the tree with the root collar/root flare (place where the roots first start on the tree trunk) at or slightly above soil level. For potted trees, remove the tree from the pot and then start to remove soil from the top of the root ball, slowly, until you find the root collar/root flare. Trees are planted much deeper in a pot, for stability, than they should be planted in the ground. If a tree looks like a telephone pole going into the ground, it, more-than-likely, has been planted too deep.
B&B stock is less likely to be too deep, but remove soil, slowly, from the top of the root ball until the root collar/root flare is located and plant so this is at or slightly above soil level.
