Discussions of Urban Forests and trees in general, including their growth, care, and impact on society. Discussions of specific trees, parks or forests in urban areas should be included in the proper forum of the Trip Reports and Site Descriptin category of this BBS.
Very nice. Today the very first daffodils opened in my back yard. The forsythia also started to flower today. Most of the trees have not shown any green yet, The tuliptrees buds are just barely starting to crack open. The red flowers on the maples are well along, but have not started to drop off yet. Looks like NYBG Rock Gardens are much farther along into spring than we are here.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
