Not Chocolate Raisins

I found a few tiny fir trees growing on my land today! I haven’t been able to pinpoint their exact species yet, but I am leaning towards Abies sibirica. This might not seem like a big deal, but the Abies family is not a native species to where I live, so I am super excited that the big fir trees on my plot are showing signs of natural regeneration.

The bad part is that these saplings will have to be dug out and replanted because their current location will be going through some changes in the near future. But at the moment I will leave them be and when the time comes to move them, I hope I will have gathered enough knowledge to keep them thriving.
