Giant Dibbler

Here is my giant dibbler.  Made from a pine 4×4.

The cross bar is made from ash.  The point has been shaped into a triangle.

This tool is pretty useful, it has even been borrowed by several people and returned damaged.  It still works fine.  You stick the point where you want to plant a small tree or such, and then step on the crossbar to push it into the ground.  Place the plant into the hole, and add some extra soil.  A bit of water helps.

The triangular point is to resolve issues with hard soil.  A round hole, can cause a plant put into hard soil, to make a spiral mess of roots.  A triangular hole will prevent roots from defecting along a smooth curved wall.  This makes for healthier and more stable plants.

Additionally this is a very useful tool to have when the giant vampires attack.
