When I was in high school, my dad more or less forced me to plow a field and then plant 500 trees. Being in high school, I, of course, hated being burdened with yet another duty/chore.

High school was a lifetime ago for me, and now some of those trees are FARKing huge! But the even cooler thing about it is that you can see that they have had babies, and some of the 2nd generation trees are probably 20 feet tall or so.

One interesting thing about it is that these trees were planted in a line, and they had generally moderate growth/success, but there is this one spot where the three biggest trees of the lot are all right together. Makes me wonder. The bad news is that it so overgrown now that you can't get a sense of it visually. Any picture from a distance showing the stand would only show the tops of the trees for all the growth around it.
