A few days ago, on January 20th, I went out to check Andy’s trees in the Morristown, NJ, area. The Crocuses were already an inch tall. Even though severe cold was forecast in the immediate future, the trees told me that the weather would be warming up by about February 4th. So, the trees are saying that there will be an early Spring.
Specifically, the Maples said that they would be barely starting to push up sap on January 24th.
So, here it is, January 24th! Out I went. Temperature is 23 degrees with a wind-chill factor of about 4 degrees.

A two-part video. Dr. Jim Conroy talks about tying all the storm prep together while at Big Triple Oak in the Morristown, NJ area on Sunday, as Hurricane Sandy approaches the coast. First gusts of wind are already felt. Dr. Jim explains how trees and ecosystems are sharing the “Storm Prep Whispers” that both you and he have been doing.
