Just planted this Korean Fir yesterday here in the PNW. In fact, it's the 5th tree we've planted in our new yard in just a few weeks. It never occurred to me to plant a tree this time of year esp since we had a very frigid winter last year. But, with a new home and bare yard, I went for it and have read and been told by many nursery owners, it's the best time to plant. You don't have to tell me twice or ten times to plant a tree so I'm on the hunt for a few more before the freeze comes. BTW... this little variety is perfect in smaller spaces and won't over power any size yard. And the other trees I've planted... American Smokebush, Bay, Maple and a Strawberry Tree.

Am glad to see posters that are familiar with plant/tree habits, i.e tiki..nweisser..zeke.. Though it's nice to have suggestions and photos, I think it can be dangerously misleading to not give info about growth habits such as invasiveness by underground roots, vining, seeds, ground sucker spreading etc. Ever have a neighbor's plantings invade your yard? I have. Ivy creeper plants that invaded a river stone wall and broke up cement holding the rocks, underground runners and sucker branches. You name it. The neighbors just threw their arms up in defeat. Plus, need info on how to care for them: how often do they need pruning, when and how to prune, etc. I don't have a gardener.
