I have several Catalpa tree babies that are healthy and thriving. Not my
favorite tree, wouldn't you know. I plan to put them in gallon size
planting cans (gardening cans) when they are a bit taller.
The Willows are doing very well too, each is about 2 feet tall now. I have
moved them to larger pots and will keep them there until they are larger.
Altogether I have about 6 now.
My Chinaberry seeds have not yet germinated, nor have the Burr Oak and Live
Oak. So I don't know what to do with them. Any hints? I had placed them
in good potting soil and I am keeping them moist. The Chinaberrys are
outside on the patio in pots, the Oaks are in the sun room near the window.
We love trees and want to have many in our bare acre in the back.

Since I'm relatively certain you won't be pruning or doing any of the
other things which you were directed to do, I beg of you first that
you do not plant chinaberry. It is a noxious weed and is taking over
many parts of the south, displacing the native trees.
If you do a simple search on how to germinate Burr Oak and Live Oak
you will find it. I have seedlings coming up everywhere in the yard
on all sides. I am going to pot them up and grow them out for a few
years and sell them to the nursery I deal with. I don't actually
germinate the oaks myself, they do it all on their own.

Should I continue or are these reliable resources enough to satisfy
Name some of the unique features of chinaberry that make it helpful to
humans. If you know any. If not, why?
You are one of those people calling trees weeds and know, nothing, about the
unique features of the trees.
