    Well, I use my parents property to dump all my lawn debris there. So tonight I go over there, dump my grass clippings and decide to go in the house and say hi before taking off for home.

    I say hi, and start to back out of the driveway, and whoops! I backed over his brand new maple tree. He was not a happy camper.

    So I tried to fix it, but I don't think the survival of that tree will be too much longer.

    I would hope you will replace it.

    I cannot express how much I have "dumped" on my dad....


    He loved me, and left me my name, plus some money, some land, some morals....etc...

    do the right thing!

    But since I am in my 40's, I prolly have a different set of values than you....:angel:

    Those guys, our dads....love us no matter what....

    well, I put sphagnum moss over the open areas, and covered them. Now I just have to wait.
    Trust me, this won't be the first tree that I have had to replace for him. Growing up there we had something called "ATV's".....end of story

    Oh, marrone! You crushed your dad's maple?

    Unless you want him to cross your a** out of his will, you better replace the tree!
