    In other words.  Vigor is the genetic capacity to survive and thrive.  Think about it as a potential.  Vitality is the ability, kinetic, to grow under ambient conditions.  The conditions it finds itself.  Think kinetic, think potential.  You can do little about vigor except to select vigorous trees.  If you plant a vigorous tree incorrectly on a rock and treat in incorrectly it won’t live very long.  If you can get a low vigor tree and plant it correctly and maintain it, it will live for a long time.  Think about these words.  Very simple words, but think about them please.  Just think about them.
