Did I Mention We Name Our Trees?

As you may or may not know, I live on 5 acres of land comfortably somewhere between everyday life and the middle of nowhere. We have tons of trees on our place, but there are a few that hold a special significance to us, so we decided that we needed a way to remember them and how we got them. The best way to do this, we decided, was to name them. So, without further delay, here are our trees, their names, and why we like them.

Stuart Little

This is Stuart Little. He got his name because he used to be quite small, but one year just exploded and is now quite large. You’ll note that he has a face because he’s the personality of all the trees.

Blazer Tree

This little guy is named “Blazer Tree” because we got him at a Blazer game almost a decade ago. They were handing out small sticks wrapped in plastic because it was “Free Tree” night at the Rose Garden. While most people threw their trees away, we took ours home and planted him. His growth was stunted quite a bit, because as you can see he’s still only about 3-4 feet tall. I can’t help but wonder how many other Blazer Trees are still alive?

Eileen and Tim

We have some family friends named Tim and Eileen who gave us some baby trees one day, so after they grew up to be nice big trees we decided to name them after their parents, Tim and Eileen.


This is my tree! He’s a Giant Sequoia and only about 5 years old. He started out tiny, maybe 2 feet tall, and is now pushing fifteen feet tall. We planted him in a spot that wouldn’t pose any type of threat over the next couple hundred years because we want him to grow just as big as any redwood or sequoia in California. He’s doing great!

So those are our trees. No, I’m not weird for naming my trees, everybody should do it!

You're not weird, not at all —trees are living beings, too. :P

You should put signboards or plaques next to each, though, so that future visitors can know their names.

I like Stuart Little best...I always wished that would happen, that I would just shoot up and grow super tall...it didn't happen.
