Tree following, February 2020

Liz –  There’s been plenty of heavy rain and gale force winds, and even some snow, during the past month here in Lexington, Kentucky and there is little new to report about the White Oak.

I’m impressed, and relieved, that it’s withstood the winter weather as it has.

The pictures below show the trunk base, and water-droplets on the branch stems.

 

 

 

Mike – There has been similar weather here, but thankfully no snow.  A close look at the Plum shows the first signs of blossom buds starting to form.

It originally had two main stems but one split away near ground level some years ago.  The new growth where that happened has resulted in a mass of tangled stems.

Our thanks to Pat, The Squirrelbasket, for hosting Tree following.  If you want to know what it’s all about, and perhaps follow one as well, please click on the link over on the right-hand side.

Have a good weekend!

    I shall enjoy following along with the plum tree as I have a small one in my garden. I haven’t noticed any change in it yet but I’ll have to take a closer look, as you say, buds will soon become apparent.

  2. I’ve ordered 30 trees today, from the Woodland trust; we’re giving over a piece of ground we’ve always mown, to a copse.

  3. Interesting we are on two different continents yet still experiencing the same wet and windy weather at the moment…
    Thank you both for sharing 🙂
