In Search of the Ancients

The Ancient Black Tupelos

Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees. Such was the case of the ancient Black Tupelos aged 400 – 500 years old. We purposely waited till the Fall so that we could see their brightly colored leaves on the forest floor. A great harvest day. Very excited about this years germination.
