    Catalpa tree

    Posted by Melanie Richardson on 04/21/22

    The tree is just a straight stick. For a catalpa tree I was expecting some shape. Some limbs or bends. We will wait to see how it turns out. It has big roots to fill as I just had to move away from my first and favorite catalpa tree.
