Texture and color: the beauty of tree bark

Tree bark challenge

While we wait for the flowers to emerge here in Mount Washington Valley, why not look at trees and take photos of tree trunks? That’s what I did today on a walk around my neighborhood. Even after 20 years of involvement in horticulture and design, I am continually fascinated by trees. I enjoy the variety of forms, the silhouettes, foliage colors and bark textures. Trees just get better with age and it is always a treat to come across an ancient tree in the forest that was saved from the chainsaw or tree harvester. It’s a fun challenge to try to ID a tree just by looking at its bark. Give it a try – these are all native to northern New England.
