Re: PEI woods

Aw, Ok. :) I notice differences, and I nibble when in the woods. Pure yellow birch tastes nice, white birch not so much and probable hybrids a bit off, odd. White elm seed can be rubbed between the hands to dewing it and eaten like sunflower seeds. Yummy....red elm, not so much. Lots of differences....

Re: PEI woods

Well, with natural regeneration and both species present, you either live with any hybrids, or rogue them.
I'm kind of live and let live.

Re: PEI woods

Well, the ones I suspect are hybrids are quite young. They mostly look like yellow birch, it will be a while till they get some age on them and their appearance changes as they age.

PEI woods

To add insult to injury, our woods burnt in 1945 and has since come up in white spruce, poplars of assorted kinds, and only a few black birch and balsam fir. Still, the fire didn't jump t...

Re: American Chestnut comes out of stasis

I've got some at 46 degrees north too, also outside their range. I got my first nut this year, pollen from a 9 year old tree to pollinate my single.
