DECIDUOUS TREES

This is probably my favorite time of the year, just before deciduous tree flush out with their new growth. Now that all my trees have been repotted I can sit back and enjoy them. The reason I enjoy deciduous trees so much because it’s like having 2 trees in one. When they have all their leaves they look so different from when they have dropped all their leaves. With bare branches one can appreciate all the work put into the ramification process as well as the trunk and branch structure. In addition one can see better where there are flaws. So here is a sampling of some of my trees.

HORNBEAM

S4201404
BALD CYPRESS

S4201403
HORNBEAM

S4201405
BALD CYPRESS

S4201410
SWAMP DOGWOOD (Cornus foemina)

S4201407
SNOWBELL (Styrax americana)

Now who says I don’t wire my trees? Do you think those branches get that way because of gravity?!?!?!?

    Alan I love this time as well. It is so satifying being able to look at all the work you did over the winter and that you are prepared for the trees to bud out. It really gives me the feeling of hope forthe new year and all the potential the tree can accomplish over the next months. Great post!
