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

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

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

  12. 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.

  16. 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.
