+ tree tagging in feeney’s, new hope, pa
i still can’t believe how nice the weather is today. not only breezy all the time- there is NO humidity. none. consider the weather we had in the past couple days – awfully hot and sticky – today is like a total blessing. even though it was pretty muddy in the tree area (i believe it is from the crazy storm we had three nights ago), this is definitely better than doing tree tagging in one of these unbearable hot days.
a quick profile of betula nigra ‘dura-heat’:
+ attracts birds, butterflies
+ deer resistant,
+ fall color (butter-yellow) / year-round interest
+ native to north american
+ waterwise (good tolerance to summer heat)
