If a tree blooms in the woods…

Okay, so it should say if a tree falls in the woods but the point here is it seems a little early for trees getting ready to bloom but if you look outside in my front yard, I have a Bradford Pear tree that looks ready to bloom. So that got me to thinking about trees and climate change and the like.

So anyway, first up is an article entitled “Pine Beetle Attacks Alter Climate Over Canadian Forests” by Deanna Conners over at EarthSky.

Then I saw this article on the same day entitled “Peatland Forest Loss and Climate Change” by Alex Peel over at the Environmental News Network via Planet Earth on Line. So one plus one equals what again?

Finally there was this article over at Science Daily that was titled “Spring May Come Earlier to North American Forests, Increasing Uptake of Carbon Dioxide” originally written by CatherĀ­ine ZanĀ­donella. Okay, you do the math.

Sincerely-
