Did you know, the most common tree in the United States is the red maple?
I didn't. And a very happy birthday to Hilary.
Your tree factoid for the day, EC:)Someone has a Bday coming up......
No, but I am not surprised. Are they the forest trees that make such beautiful red scenery in your fall?
Yes. Good job, Andrew.
It's a nice tree to have a lot of! Hugs, Valerie
It is for sure, Val:)Hugs received and returned.
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!
Happy Birthday, Hils.Enjoy your day to the fullest.
I wonder if elm trees held first place until decimated by the Dutch elm disease?
Could be. There certainly wasn't a shortage of elms, back in the dark ages, when I was growing up:)
Interesting. Happy Birthday Hilary!
Nope. Happy birthday, Hilary.
Have a great one.
I would have guessed that or the pine. Now I know!
I would have too, Jeanie.
well I lost that bet because I was going for oak ;) ☺☺♥♥
Who'd a thought, hey?
Botany is my weakness, every tree is a tree to me
You have plenty of other strengths, especially history;)
I didn’t. Thanks for the knowledge.
I didn't. I would have guessed oak. Happy birthday, Hilary!
And that would have been a good guess.xoxox
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.
They are a beautiful tree, aren't they, dear Elizabeth?
No lo sabia, son unos lindos arboles. Te mando un beso
They are, aren't they, J.P.Sending you a hug.
I didn't know that...Happy birthday Hilary.Wishing you a wonderful weekend.All the best Jan
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.
Oops and a belated Happy Birthday to Hilary. I hope she had a wonderful day.
I didn't know that but, they are beautiful trees and there are a lot of them around here.
Happy Birthday Hilary
