"Big Mike's Tree Photo Pages"




Mike photo of the tree he got from the Frantantoni Family over 15 years ago. Here is a photo of Bike Mike's tree. Just got the tree from his friend. The Frantantoni Family was growing baby trees in there backyard at the time. Gave one to Mike to keep back in 1995.

Here is Mike's one of two young tree. What it looks likewhen it was little Here is a photo of when the tree was growing. Notice the tree is now in a white bucket. Needed a bigger bucket to grow. Help from Vinnie to transplant the tree into the white bucket. This photo was taken one year after the first photo above.

Mike ten year old tree The tree you see is the tree that Mike has been caring for 10 years. The tree was given to Mike by his long time friend Vinnie. A former commissioner of Belleville back in the days. The tree ten years ago was only 2 inches tall. Now the tree is currently about 15 foot tall. Struggled to grow in a toy green bucket by his porch. The last two years. Had problem growing to squirrels biting on the branches during the cold season.
