TREE SEEDLINGS ARE TOUGH!
Last fall I wrote about a tree perservering even tho one might not expect it to. http://sarasinart.net/2013/08/05/perseverance/ I had to have the tree cut down, and then it sent shoots up from the trunk, which is apparently alive although it was diseased and would have soon collapsed on its own.
We had the worst kind of Pa winter here: the kind of sustained cold and ice and snow that will sometimes kill perennial plants that normally live thru our winters. This was the winter that wouldn’t go away, and I’ve been out looking at things that should liven up each spring, hoping they all do.
So above is the old tree trunk, with the new growth from last year, a picture I just took today. Below is a picture of new shoots coming out on that new growth, and the tree is trying to continue to grow.
