Are Nursery Trees Personal Property? M. asks: " What is the law about nursery trees? Are they to be considered real estate or personal property? Ought they not, in any event, to be considsred personal property? I hear some argue that they ought to be regarded as real estate".
We do not feel competent to answer this question. Different judges decide differently; nor can we say what it ought to be regarded. If one is in a part of the country where taxes are levied on personal property, he would be glad if trees were real estate. It requires a great deal of knowledge derived from the study of ages of experience to decide this.
