  • Things that that bring you back to a place… a time back in ’69 when the builder of a new home on rolling Kansas terrain told my mom the dutch elm trees would have to go in order to raise/lower the landscape grade to our newly poured basement foundation. Mom’s answer, “You build the house Jake… we’ll handle the trees”. … and so that summer taking large rock from a nearby commercial construction digging we built both root preserving wells and walls as needed and they are still in place today. In fact most every tree we planted at early living sites in Missouri and Kansas are still standing even though we have been gone 40 or more years. In our family when some one died, we planted a tree.
