New Life for Chinkapin

Last year I posted on a “Lack of Courage” about a Chinkapin Oak.

P1500489

I cut the tree down to about 3 inches last fall and hoped for the best.  This spring to prevent deer browse I put two tree protectors around the tree.

Now in Mid-July there is a lot of new growth.  Some of it is over the 4 foot tube.

I will let all the new growth continue until the fall and when the tree goes dormant I will trim off all but the best 2 or 3 sprouts.
