    my friend was always bragging about getting these $1000+ paychecks every 2 weeks (we were in hs, i'm 19 now.) and so i bugged him enough about it and he got me a job there. it's a cool job, but if you don't sell anything you don't make anything.





    you can try grafting a branch from an apple tree to the trunk of a cherry tree, but i doubt it would work. it's actually a lot more difficult then what comes to mind <_<

    nawww, if I remember correctly from science there makup is to different to cross breed like you would a a donkey and a horse (=mule).

    you could however borrow a hole into say an apple tree and then implant a limb of say a pear tree. Thus you would have made a tree that grows both pears and apples. NOTE: I was told this was possible, that person could have been wrong but thats what they said.

    this is true. it's the theory behind out "fruit cocktail" tree's that have an orange, a lemon, and an grapefruit, all comming off of 1 tree. the only down side is that if one part grow's faster then the other, it will begin to take over the rest of teh tree. lemons are the fastest growing out of the 3, so the lemon would begin to take over the tree. oranges will taste like lemons, and the same for the grapefruits. not to mention the lemon side of the tree will begin to get bigger and hevier then the other 2.

    in arizona... the best climbing tree would probably be a ficus nitida. the best tree house tree would be a shamel ash, the best swing tree would have to be the southern live oak. not quite sure what you mean by sling shot making tree...



    right now i'm set to get about $2000ish back from taxes :)

    how about the cnoreqigjh mimdqoig tree. LOl do they have common names cause what you said makes zero sense. sling shot making tree = the trees branch you use for slingshots, good strong wood.
