I'm saying, though, if there's as much snow as the picture shows, then the ground beneath it must have been mighty frozen. It would have been a lot of work to dig all that up, then plant a tree, then put the snow back on top of it.
Next time, buy a fake tree. It'll save you the time and effort, and probably a few bucks as well. With that saved money, you can donate more to charity. Thus, the giving tree never stops giving.
