Nah, your trees should be fine. The Ilex comment was a joke for Harry.

Harry,
When I was in OKC a few weeks ago, about half of the small leaved plantings I saw were Ilex vomitoria- Dwarf Yaupon Holly, they are everywhere. I was on another site and there was an extensive debate about these plants being semitropical- they do great here in the Fayetteville area as well.

Okay, gotcha, here's one I bid on a while back on ebay, even made a reasonable offer, but I was turned down.

keep it green,
Harry

Did John bring the hoops with him or did he bend them with his bare hands right there on site??

Note to John:
John, I need some work done in my garden also.
Do you own a rake??

Dale,
OK, you come dig trees for me (I have about 7-800 in the ground, $20 apiece row run- 25 tree minimum.) and I will think about coming to your place and rake.

Chris is a fellow SOB, we SOBs stick together. For the record, I bent the hoops at home the day before I went over, I thought about bending them on site, but didn't want to take a chance on running out of daylight before we got done.

Cheers,
John
