    Love birches. Thanks for this and the links. The one link says hardy in Zone 3 which SK is rapidly warming up to. Hmmm, wonder if one would survive here. I know they need lots of water!

    Betula lenta are common here in Connecticut, often dense in areas recently disturbed.

    I don’t think you can the link above to go directly to the website of the Arnold Arboretum, but is a good one with a Canadian focus.

    A great photograph to see on a gray morning outside of Hartford.

    Beautiful photo. I like the way a single photo shows both the leaf and tree form.
