From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feeling of others made me realise that you were the last man in the world I would ever prevailed upon to marry.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Chinese Proverb (via showslow)

In our #citydata series, we noted that Vancouver is busy answering this call to arms by planting 150,000 new trees through 2020!

It’s imperative. The plant has been deforested by 50% due to human activity. Might I suggest a Maple of some sort. Yes, they are my favorite tree, but they grow fast and have a large canopy. They are probably the best shade tree. But in 20 years, you will have a good size tree. I have one that’s probably 15 years old or so that’s at least 10 feet taller than the utility pole it stand next to.

I have another one that is about 10 years old that taller than my garage peak. Seriously, they grow fast.

And I have the mother of all the other ones in my back yard. I didn’t plant her, but I’m estimating she’s at least 60/65 years old. She started as two trees that grew into one. Grandpa had them cabled together at some point in the past so it would split down the middle once it got big. Anyway, it’s now huge tree with a massive canopy that looks like it’s out of a painting. The canopy by itself is bigger in mass than a moderate old two story house. 

I find it to be quite rewarding to look at these full size trees and know that I nurtured them from little starts I pulled here and there to the full size trees they are now.

This time of the year you can little maple starts everywhere. Typically in a shady area. They like the shade when they’re young. It’s best to let them grow a couple feet before you move them. If you take a baby one and transplant it in direct sun, it tends to stunt their growth. They’ll lose their leaves and look dead. And it will take a while for them to get going again. I know this because when I first started messing with them, I didn’t know what I was doing. After some trial and error, I figured out what they like. 

Plan ahead, because a Maple is gonna be a big tree down the line. Make sure you don’t plant them too close to a structure, and I would definitely avoid areas where you know or think there might be underground utilities (sewer, electric, gas lines, etc) since they will develop a root system that likely mirrors the canopy. ie: BIG

Another thing you can do is get some 5 gallon buckets and put a start per bucket so you can get them going in a shady area until they can handle full sun. Once they can, they’ll grow so fast you’ll be surprised.

One more tip, they are such a good shade tree, you’ll want to imagine where they will cast shade once they’re bigger. Otherwise, like me…you’ll have to move half your flower beds because once they’re in the shade, you ain’t growing no flowers.

This is one of my favorite causes. Plant a tree for me, would ya? :)
