Date planted: Nov 2017
Remarks:  Two attempts of planting a large tree is foiled by the road laying teams who simply uprooted and threw the sapling while laying the new road layer. While I planted the same sappling again here, I have also planted the Mexican Sunflower which has surpassed the original tree plant, and has grown to a size of 20-25 feet, beyond my own expectations!
