Growing Trees from Seed

In Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert a boy tells the story of his sugar maple tree. One day workers in the tree nursery went into the forest to find and care for trees. When the trees grew bigger their roots were wrapped and they were sold to people who would care for them.

My son read this book a few years ago and I believe it was his inspiration for Chessie, his horse chestnut tree.

One day in the spring he dug up some baby horse chestnut seeds that had just sprouted underneath a tree in the park.

He brought it home and cared for it......

and is still dreaming of the day when his tree will grow as big as it's mama.
