With some work still ahead, I thought I could pay homage to the fallen tree in our yard with some (mostly) fun and upbeat articles about trees.
These next two articles show how even trees can figure out climate change. They are “Michigan Cherry Growers, Deciphering Climate Models, Find Uncertainty Reigns” by Andrew McGlashen at Scientific American and “Tokyo Cherry Blossom Viewing Season Opens Early for Fourth Straight Year” by Matthew McDermott at Treehugger.
If I ever get around to it, my mom recently came across a picture of me as a teenager (I believe) standing next to a big redwood in California, which I’m hoping to post soon. Stay tuned!
