This spring we planted two burr oaks just off the back porch to replace the old post oak that we lost. We coverted the ground around the new trees with a thick layer of shredded tree mulch to help them weather hot days of the summer. To my astonishment, a wild rabbit decided that the mulch under the tree was the perfect place to raise her brood. We’ve been watching the den for two weeks and this is the first time one of the little ones has poked his head out.
