Picea proclivity

wisconsitomMay 13, 2012

What with our early spring this year, and despite later coldness, the genus Picea seems to be headed for a banner growth year around here this year. Especially abies, but all species really, have burst forth with new growth both earlier and more luxuriantly than I think is usual. We've had some timely soaking rains too, and that always seems to push things along, but that happens most springs. I am speculating about the reason, but these trees look especially happy so far this year.

I've recently been thinking this year is going to be ideal for llamas growth spurts.

I'm seeing that down here too, +om. Great, healthy looking new growth.

Maybe the best I've ever knowingly seen. Especially on the Norways, but then, they're especially vigorous anyway.
