Wldrns, Great anecdote!
Back in 1976/1977 my brothers, cousins and I planted a forest of trees provided by the State. Back then they paid you a small sum to plant them (something like $20.00 per thousand). We used the money to buy a canoe which I still have, heavy sucker, and the walk through said forest today is impressive as all get out.
We didn't plant any Blue Spruce but all the ones I see around town are dying, including the three hugging and protecting the front of my house. Gonna be bummed when I have to say good bye those friends.
However I do have a bone to pick with you. One of my bundles back in 1976 only had 48 seedlings.
