Help with I.D.
« on: June 06, 2021, 07:44:18 AM »
I'll bet @SwampDonkey knows what this is. He knows everything that grows in my area of the u.p. I think as it is so similar to his latitude.

I have thinned around it over the years and it is really a handsome feature of the cabin. The birds love it.

I love the form of them, we lost our last one by the house a few years ago.

I would have said dogwood, but didn't look exactly like the ones around me.

It looks so different from the redosier dogwood that is so prolific here. I have to beat that back every year, where this I've been trying to nurture due to it's pleasing form. Its especially healthy looking this year.

Thank you Don.:)

I do the same thing here with Dogwoods and other flowering trees.  Some years I find new ones in an area I have been through dozens of times, not everything flowers every year.  This spring I found three Serviceberry / Shad trees in a tree line between two fields I can not begin to guess how many times I have driven, walked, or ridden by, they were only in flower for a few days.  Noticed yesterday they have seed pods now.

Pink tape? That will drive the surveyors crazy! :D ;D

If you give it a little more sun it will develop into more of a small tree but never completely out of the bush stage. I think they are pretty neat looking in full sun and rather shrubby in the shade. Yours appears to be somewhere between the two.

Correct, kinda in between now, but it must of came to be in full shade. I recognized the uniqueness when I was clearing to the field and spared it. This was mostly brush as recently as 4 years ago. You couldn't see into the field other than straight down the trail past the outhouse. There are a couple of iffy aspen growing there yet I will take out. This specimen I think deserves some special attention.
