A couple of times when I was a kid, but I'm 99% sure they met a quick death by lawnmower before they had a chance to grow very large.

I'm the age where a person should plant a tree but I don't own any property.

I planted orange seeds and avocado seeds in pots. My biggest orange tree definitely looks like a tree even though it's only about a foot tall and seven years old. I didn't plant my coffee seedlings but they will be indoor trees if I can afford enough heat to keep them alive. I didn't plant my Norfolk Island Pine either, but it was a six inch tabletop houseplant when I bought it and it sure looks like a tree in its 12" nursery pot now.

So. Many. In the driest soil possible it seemed. Had a (thankfully paid) internship at an environmental/marine bio non-profit and did the Million Trees LA thing. Imagine a bunch of nerds going door to door in the hood, asking if people want a tree.

I started growing trees just to guerilla plant them somewhere where they hopefully won't land under the lawnmower, or to just give them to people who are still open about planting a tree in their garden. I really have a strong urge to plant as many trees as possible.

How many survived? Were they all one species or was it a polyculture?

No clue about the living.but ive done this multiple times. I know that at least twice it was a mix of native trees where woods existed that were cut down for farms.but they wanted to go back

Trees are kinda big and there's not much room in the suburban area where I live. I've planted moderately big plants like sunflowers and shrubs though.

I think shrubs are small trees.

i think shrubs or bushes are different from small trees in habit and appearance, though some are more conducive to arborist training. i'm sure many trees have a maximum growth-height of under ten feet, some are called "dwarf." a fellow plant-enchanted person and teacher yesterday recommended me a reference-guide book; Right Plant, Right Place. I just scrolled it on Amazon , looks worthwhile
