    I can see there were maybe a lot of oak trees in garden home at that time , My dad Fred Gertsch told me of them having a lot of swiss picnic under the tall oaks on the Gertsch Farm .

    I remember Hunting around those trees in the early 1960 for game.

    Funny, I was just out in Canby where Oak trees are everywhere. I was just commenting on how the SW side has mostly evergreen’s, big leaf maples, but don’t see a lot of oak around. By the way, it’s still a safe place to grow up at now.
