I remember as a child the huge shellbark nuts, down along the creek of my grandparents farm, and have never seen them anywhere else. So I wanted to grow some of my own.

I'm reforesting my property. I plant as many Stark Brothers products as I can afford every year. This tree will replace a tree from one of your competitors that did not survive it's second winter. I will not be surprised to find Stark's product to be a healthier, vibrant, faster growing tree then the non-Stark trees that I already planted. Long live Stark Brothers.
