Man Keeps Promise to His 4th Grade Self to Move Childhood Tree to His Own House Twenty Years Later

When Chris of letsdig18 moved into his own house, he brought along with him an oak tree from his parent’s house. When Chris was in fourth grade, he planted this tree from an acorn for a science project. At the time he hoped that the tree would come with him where ever he would go. Luckily, Chris had the excavation skills necessary to make such a dream come true some 20 years later.

Moving my childhood oak tree to the farm. I planted it when I was in the 4th grade. Science project was to sprout an acorn into a tree. I ended up planting it at my parent’s house and have always dreamed about moving it to my house when I built one.
