After a hot day, Ponderosa pine trees off-gas some of the volatile organic chemicals in their sap. It smells like vanilla and honey and butterscotch and I wish I could share it with the rest of the world. #smellstagram

It’s true! If you ever find yourself in the presence of a ponderosa pine tree smell inside the cracks of the bark. It’s so good.

There are 6 fruit trees being delivered today. 3 different apples, a Rainier cherry, a choke cherry, and a peach. We already have 3 plums, one apricot, 4 elderberries, 4 blueberry bushes, raspberry canes, and strawberries. I think we will have the fruit thing covered very soon. Everything is very young right now, but I’m expecting fresh fruit like nuts by the time I retire.

One of the reasons I love deciduous forests. There’s magic in these places.

Indeed. Leaves are fantastic in all the seasons.

If you’ve never been to California to see its giant redwoods, you should probably go soon. It might be only a matter of time before they’re all gone. Research released Friday indicates that the world’s oldest trees are dying at an alarming rate. “It is a very, very disturbing trend,” says lead researcher William Laurance of James Cook University. “We are talking about the loss of the biggest living organisms on the planet, of the largest flowering plants on the planet, of organisms that play a key role in regulating and enriching our world.”

Just a few of the captivating Bonsai from the collection of the National Bonsai Foundation.

Everyone’s loving bonsai today! I’m all for it.

I tried bonsai cedar and dwarf pomagranate before. Neither lasted very long…

The Case for More Urban Trees
The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.
If you plant a tree today on the west side of your home, in 5 years your energy bills should be 3 percent less. In 15 years the savings will be nearly 12 percent.
One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen.
A number of studies have shown that real estate agents and home buyers assign between 10 and 23 percent of the value of a residence to the trees on the property.
Surgery patients who could see a grove of deciduous trees recuperated faster and required less pain-killing medicine than matched patients who viewed only brick walls.
