August Alphabet Words - Tree

The squirrels and chipmunks deposit the acorns from the oak trees in the most inconvenient places sometimes.
This tree was going through the gap between two boards of our deck. I was going to just chop the top off every time it poked its nose out but Hubby insisted that we lift the boards and dig out the tree.
It did have some die back when we replanted it, but it does have some new growth to it now.
Who knows, it may make it over the winter and become another oak tree that bears acorns for the squirrels and chipmunks to hide in the most inconvenient places! LOL!
I have friends who cut a hole in their deck for an oak tree! It’s huge now.

I have also seen that. It is so cool!
I was thinking about that but did not want the roots to damage the foundation of our house. Besides - it was only a foot away from the house and would be too big too soon!

@farmreporter they have sold that house, I’ve always been sorry I didn’t get a photo of the tree and the deck. They kept making the hole larger and larger every year. I guess because of where it was it didn’t hurt the house’s foundation and it’s roots didn’t hurt the underground pipes. I would say it was maybe 8 feet from the house.
