I am fascinated how the sap of the Sugar Maple can be used to make maple syrup. I also found it interesting how the wood of this tree is one of the hardest and densest of the maples.
The Eastern white pine has the distinction of being the tallest tree in Eastern North America. It has been reported that these trees have grown to be 70 meters (230 ft.).
The Sycamore tree has fairly symmetrical leaves. I noticed how the bark of the Sycamore tree seems to broken into small little pieces that overlap each other.
These trees can live to be 500 years old. The Nothern red oak is adaptable to many soils and varied situations.
I admire this tree's structure, especially it's wide-spreading crown of rugged branches. I have also discovered that there is an estimated 1,500 year old Pedunculate Oak in Lithuania.
