I'm not ready for planting trees just yet, but Armstrong's, a nursery chain in So Cal has Little Jamie evergreens for $9.95. Is that good, or should I look elsewhere, when it's time. I'm sure they'll be some for sale at the Big Train Show, but this is so easy, since the nursery is just a few miles away.

Pete, Little Jamie is a type of pine tree, that's popular among many garden railroaders. Although I have no personal experience with its growing habits, it appears to retain its conical shape and doesn't grow too tall, if you keep it trimmed. I'm sure if you Google the name, you may come up with a description and maybe a picture. I don't know if they tolerate real weather (hey, we live in California!). Somewhere in my photo archives, I have a photo I took at the Big Train Show a few years ago, and I'll put it up if I can find it. Or, if you get Garden Railways, over the last few years they have done roundups of trees and shrubs and I know Little Jamie is listed. Oh, and don't ask me the Latin name. I flunked every year and had to go to summer school./DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif
