Spring

From Sleeping Trees to Spring Leaves

I have always been captivated by how trees withstand the harshest of winter weather and know when to grow their new leaves in the spring. This isn’t magic. The process actually depends on a variety of factors, such as temperature, precipitation and species type, and the timing can even change from year to year! Bud burst, or in other words “leafing out,” in the spring, is a more remarkable process than many of us know!
