I have 4 concrete planters outside the back door that I don't keep plants in except weeds. Now one has a Pecan tree and another has a Walnut tree growing in them. The squirrels plant nuts every year but this is the first time in these pots. The pecan Picture 001.jpg Picture 002.jpg The walnut Picture 005.jpg Picture 007.jpg I broke the walnut but the tree shouldl be fine Picture 008.jpg They plant so many each year I usually pull them up or cut them with the lawnmower.but these two I will pot later. The squirrels were building a nest yesterday in the old maple tree getting ready for their second litter and they dropped a bunch of the cuttings all over the patio. I threw their cuttings in for Galloper to eat the fresh leaves.

I'm laughing because you seem to be on the "smart-end" of squirrels being squirrels...they throw out stuff that becomes trees & food for a tort. I've had the fortune of feeding squirrels who never attacked my house, roof, attic, an animal I loved or all the horrid things they do. I get why this might upset everyone on the forum. I was just lucky to have spiffy squirrels in Colorado & one time at Lake Powell.

Their dreys are so beautiful. They are master basket weavers.🙂
