I was pleased to find that the dead leaves that I showed in last month’s post were just a small cluster on a spindly branch that that partially snapped.
Overall the young oak tree is looking green and healthy.
Looking closely I can see that each branch has new growth showing, in some cases more than a foot in length.
This picture shows both old and new growth. Being a young, and still small, oak tree I’m able to see such details.
It also shows how the new pale leaves darken as they get bigger and older.
Thanks to Pat for hosting Tree Following on her The Squirrelbasket blog, and do have a look at this comprehensive post to see what it’s all about.
Have a good weekend!
