|While beautiful, the ice from this storm stuck to the trees and caused a lot of damage.|
|Last spring I used available branches|
to build tomato supports.
|The Black Cherry with its scaly bark is on the left. |
On the right is the Black Locust with deeply furrowed bark.
This Locust was more than 40' tall.
|Thorns on Black Locust are paired up.|
|This section of the truck was growing horizontally. Note how far off-center the growth rings are. |
The wood under the greater tension is more compact (top) compared to the bottom side.
|This section taken from straight portion of the truck shows even growth.|
|Can you help me identify this tree?|
