Stupid Snow

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


That stupid snowstorm last weekend broke a major branch off our baby Maple in the backyard.

Poor tree. Stupid snow.

I see the problem -- yer branch isn't attached anymore. That's why it's laying in the yard like that.

And that's why we have duct tape, right?

Neither one of you is very helpful.

How about staples?

Poor widdle branch...

Make sure you check with your local extension agent to find out the proper way to trim the broken stub so it heals correctly at the trunk line.

Wendy, usually we just ignore it and hope it heals up. At least that's what we did with the Maple in front when it lost a major branch.

Plants and trees must be HARDY to survive my yard. I am woefully neglectful.

But I make up for it by babying my dog.

I was just noting that it was a pretty jagged break. Maybe just even up that pointy edge.

And you should always spoil the dog.

Snowstorms do a number on the pear tree in my backyard, including breaking the topmost trunk (the one that makes the tree taller every year). SO irritating.

Poor tree, but you actually lost me at SNOW.
I love snow, but only in its right place...Dec, Jan, maybe Feb. But the end of April? Nope.....

Poor little tree...maybe it was trying to get away from the big bad snowfall?

Maples are notorious for shedding branches. We have 3 huge ones behind the house, about 150 years old.

Every spring it looks like the set of a Sugar Maple Zombie flick.
