The majority of the land is woods, with several different species of trees and a vast number of trees. The very […]

Visit October 9 2018

I returned to my phenology spot yesterday to get a more in-depth understanding of the surroundings. When I previously visited, my main goal was to find a good spot with a great central tree.
