I was talking to another tree tube customer today. After completing another repeat order he said how please he has been with his tree tubes, then added, “The only thing I’m unhappy about is that it took me 3 years and replanting twice to start using tree tubes.”
I have heard this so many times in 23 years that I have an official name for it: The Tree Planter’s Lament.
Luckily, while most of my customer plant and fail three (or four, or five) times before ordering tree tubes, it’s not a requirement. You CAN order tree tubes the first time you plant. True, you’ll never get to utter the Tree Planter’s Lament. You’ll just have to replace with the Successful Tree Planter’s Brag: I Did I Right The First Time!
