Terminal Bud Scar: A Tree's Health Chart

Posted by Paul J Hetzler on September 24, 2019 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

Scarred for Life

Paul Hetzler, ISA Certified Arborist

It makes sense that dying trees have terminal bud scars. Sounds like an awful condition – my condolences. But the healthiest trees have them, too (terminal scars, not condolences).

Invasives decreasing carbon stored in US forests

Posted by Lew Ward on September 20, 2019 at 1:35pm 0 Comments

"In addition to cleaning the air and water, forests hold a tremendous amount of sequestered carbon. When trees die and then decay on the forest floor, that carbon is released into the atmosphere, a phenomenon that is one of the drivers of climate change. A first-of-its-kind study by a team that included the United States Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service and Purdue University scientists finds that non-native invasive insects and diseases are reducing the amount of…

Scientists are finding that forests aren’t as good at fighting climate change as we thought.

Hardly as drastic as the headline would make you think. More like fine tuning and the results really only applicable for Northern hardwoods such as the beech, sugar maples and yellow birch.---LEW…
