Final set of pictures from yesterday’s woodland visit. As I wrote, there are too many acres for me to tend personally, so I have adopted a few particular areas of special attention. They are kind of like the gardens. I planted the bald cypress near a creek (in back of where my seat is now) I just like it. Virginia is the northern limit of bald cypress natural range. A little global warming will bring it into the fold and we will be ready.
On the other side, I planted twenty-five bur oak. The bur oak is the classic Wisconsin “oak opening” species. Their natural range includes Virginia, but I have never seen any in Brunswick County, except for mine now.
