First of all, I'd like to apologize for the low quality pictures. My camera is dead and I had to use a phone.

I collected this Euonymus Alatus yesterday from school. I've had my eye on it for awhile so I decided to be brave and ask about it, what did I have to lose? It was awesome, I asked the groundskeeper if I could dig it up and he said "Go get a shovel and it's yours!"

The base is about 3-4 inches thick and there is a lot of dead wood on it from getting abused by snow removal equipment over the years. There were a few big lateral roots I had to chop through, but tons of tiny feeder roots so it will survive just fine. I think it has a great future.the pictures are: Front, Right side, Left, Whole plant(mostly).

I chopped the tree back and chopped the pot down too, so here it is one month later. It still hasn't quite leafed out yet(none of the other shrubs around here are either), but the buds are still swelling and it's definitely still alive! In all my searching around the interwebs, I haven't been able to find another burning bush with a trunk this big at all. I hope I can bring the best out of this tree! Here is the proposed front and then a closer up view of the bark with a little of the deadwood too. Any suggestions are definitely welcome.
