Sorry about the quality of these two pics, I did the best I could with what I had. But I guess that doesnt really matter in this case.

This little Red Oak was planted in 2003. Red Oak is one of the few oaks that can stand up to the brutal winters in my part of the country.

Very nice memorial! Is the picture of the tree from 2003 or present?
The tree was planted in 2003. The pic was taken yesterday.
Red oaks are a slow grower but a long lived species.

That oak is planted on the outside edge of a hard curve on the walkin path that used to be a towpath for the Black River Canal. I've seen deer there quite often, turkeys, and even wood ducks.
