I didn't. And a very happy birthday to Hilary.

Andrew said...

No, but I am not surprised. Are they the forest trees that make such beautiful red scenery in your fall?

Valerie-Jael said...

It's a nice tree to have a lot of! Hugs, Valerie

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Thanks Sandra - I certainly didn't know the Red Maple was the most common tree in the USA ... it's very pretty ... cheers from a happy Hilary!

I wonder if elm trees held first place until decimated by the Dutch elm disease?

Christine said...

Interesting. Happy Birthday Hilary!

Jamie Ghione said...

Nope.
Happy birthday, Hilary.

Jeanie said...

I would have guessed that or the pine. Now I know!

Sandra Cox said...

Your tree factoid for the day, EC:)
Someone has a Bday coming up......

Sandra Cox said...

Yes. Good job, Andrew.

Sandra Cox said...

It is for sure, Val:)
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

Happy Birthday, Hils.
Enjoy your day to the fullest.

Sandra Cox said...

Could be. There certainly wasn't a shortage of elms, back in the dark ages, when I was growing up:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Christine;)

Sandra Cox said...

Have a great one.

Sandra Cox said...

I would have too, Jeanie.

Botany is my weakness, every tree is a tree to me

When my foodie friend Sally bought a new tree for her front yard to replace her dead one, she picked a red maple. I can see why it's so popular. It grows quickly, it is disease resistant, and it has gorgeous leaves in autumn.

Happy birthday Hilary. I hope it was a great day.

No lo sabia, son unos lindos arboles. Te mando un beso

Sandra Cox said...

Who'd a thought, hey?

Sandra Cox said...

You have plenty of other strengths, especially history;)

Sandra Cox said...

You bet.

Sandra Cox said...

And that would have been a good guess.

Sandra Cox said...

They are a beautiful tree, aren't they, dear Elizabeth?

Sandra Cox said...

They are, aren't they, J.P.
Sending you a hug.

Birgit said...

I didn’t know that. I thought it would have been the oak so that is surprising but the Red maple is beautiful in the fall.

Birgit said...

Oops and a belated Happy Birthday to Hilary. I hope she had a wonderful day.

Truedessa said...

I didn't know that but, they are beautiful trees and there are a lot of them around here.
