Good solution mate!!!
Please feel free to chat about everythink and everything!!
Anyone in Scotland…?
You did say anything
You know i want forest land …
Well my favourite tree is the giant sequioa
This particular tree …
155 year’s old !!!
I got some cones off the floor , left them on the windowsill in a bag , to aid seed release.
I have taken the seeds placed them in some moistened tissue paper , placed in a food bag . These go into the fridge for 1 month
Like most coniferous trees, the seeds of giant sequoia trees need to spend a bit of time in the cold to soften their shell and lift the seed dormancy. A period of 4 - 6 weeks is a good minimum
When the time is up, i will place the bag in a dark spot at room temperature. The temperature gradient will make the seeds sprout. After a few days ill check for sprouted seeds. If i see some i will take them out, then i will plant them straight away i will then Put the bag back in the shade and check regularly for new seedlings.
So my plan is a 4-5 year wait . When i have my land ( via etn ) i will plant these in 10 meter sections and create a giant redwood forest .
These trees are endangered now so if i can help them a little bit and help promote areas for wildlife and somewhere beautiful for people to see and walk around . Then my job is complete. These trees can live up to 2000 years !! The oldest specimen is 3500 !!! So my legacy , my plan can be eternal because once these trees sprout cones me or my family or generations to come can harvest and continue on to make hopefully the uk’s own giant redwood forest…
Plus i will add red squirrels and give them a safe home .
I have one scots pine out of 30 seeds growing , so from this one i will add to the forest too.
This one survivor is around a year and 2 months old .
Wow what a plan! Careful! Your cat looks curious about the pine. Lol. I am a US intruder. Hahaha
He loves it , has a sniff everyday…
Other things involved in the plan but that part is mine lol
