Just a Tree

When I bought and planted this sugar maple tree, I was told that the climate warming changes to my state meant that the tree would really struggle as the winters became less lengthy...and perhaps less cold.  I was told this was not the place to plant such a northern tree.  I did not care because I just love how this pioneer catches fire each and every fall never failing to warm my soul.

Please note that the colors in these photos are what the camera was able to capture with no color boost!

Beautiful!
I think trees are more adaptable than science is presently giving them credit for. If they have to adjust to warmer temperature changes in the north, then it makes sense they'll also do it father south, but not too far.

Spectacular! I always think of southern trees growing further north than normal. You've given me the reverse of that too. Never thought of it before.

Your northern tree appears to be very happy in your garden. It is no doubt a beautiful addition in all seasons.
