Tree Following, March 2016 – Young oak tree

Oak tree Mar'16 - 1I haven’t seen any difference in the young oak tree since last month except that the leaves still on it are now even more crinkled.

This picture was taken last Sunday.

I’m not sure which variety of oak it is but I hope to identify it once new leaves appear. I presume that it’s either an English or Sessile oak.

Nic Hamilton used to regularly photograph a mature oak tree and show the pictures on his London (Daily) Nature Photo blog between 2007 and 2013. He took nearly 30 photos, always from the same spot (?), along with lots of other tree photos all of which can be seen on this Browse Archive webpage.

Have a look at this comprehensive post over on Pat’s, The Squirrelbasket, blog to see what tree following is all about.

Have a good weekend!

  1. Awesome update thank you for sharing have a blessed day Mike

    I don’t suppose there’s very much happening with trees at this time of year but they’ll soon be budding up ready for spring. A blackbird flew down right in front of me this morning whilst I was walking Archie with a load of moss in its beak, I think it must be nest building time already.

      Jo I suppose it depends on the tree as there is blossom on some and buds on others. Yes birds will be busy now, which is good to see as it’s another sign of spring. xx

  3. I bet there is a load of stuff going on inside to to get ready for spring. The tree will have started to convert the stored energy in the roots as carbohydrates called photosynthate in to sugars. The buds will be starting to get ready too. It’ll all be under tension waiting for that trigger to kick it into action 🙂

    That looks like a sturdy young tree. I also looked at Nic Hamilton’s pictures. Lovely.
    See you have daffodils as a header! Mine are starting to bloom.

    • Flighty says:

      Liz it sure is. I’m glad that enjoyed looking at Nic’s photos.
      Yes these are proper daffodils. I bet you’re looking forward to seeing yours in bloom. xx

    I wonder if this is the month the buds will break and leaves will start to appear. Oak trees are wonderful, it will be good to watch one through the course of the year. CJ xx

    Nice shot of your oak with blue skies behind it. Though nothing’s happening now, I bet when the new leaves start, you’ll want to do your tree-following posts more frequently!

  7. Joanne says:

    Lovely shot of your tree, I must investigate my little oak sapling to see if it survived xx

    In another month there will no doubt be tremendous changes, it’s full speed ahead for spring now. I do love oak trees, to think England was once full of

  9. My oak isn’t doing much, either, but we live in hope of spring. At least the sky is blue!
    And thanks for the link to the inspiring Nic Hamilton oak images.
    I don’t think you have added a link in the monthly link box? I will do it for you, if that’s OK, as I will be closing it today.
    Best wishes 🙂

    • Flighty says:

      Pat they’re obviously biding their time. Blue skies are always welcome.
      You’re welcome, I enjoyed looking at his pictures again.
      You’re right, I forgot to do that so thanks for noticing and adding it. xx
