October

Due to the moist soils at this location, Eastern White Pine, Northern White Oak, and Sugar and Norway Maples thrive. These images show the landscape, leaves of the Northern White Oak and Sugar and Norway Maples as well as interesting bark peeling.

Welcome to Rachael’s Phenology Blog

Welcome to Rachael’s Phenology Blog. Located under a canopy of Eastern White Pine, Northern White Oak, and Sugar Maple trees in the heart of Centennial woods. As you adventure in Centennial you come across a wide open location with a long log on the ground. When I first sat down on the log, I decided this would be my location for my Phenology Blog. I enjoy the open view of the landscape and the high canopy above. There are also two of my favorite trees located in this area. The Sugar and Norway Maples. I love the colors and shape of both of their leaves, and of course, if you tap it right, the Sugar Maple gives you maple syrup!
