People take trees for granted until one falls on your house or car. You are miserably warm on a
summer day and over there beckons a shade tree. Wow--I never knew that tree bloomed in the spring! What are those breathtaking orange trees in the autumn woods?
Deciduous tree leaves appear in nearly every color of the rainbow before they are released from the tree as the cold days of winter approach. Today, most of the trees are still in dormancy, but some now have a green cast or enlarged buds at the end of branches showing the tree is firing up for spring.
