Two Young Trees In Deep Snow Piles - In Between Two Driveways - February 2022
I posted about this same situation last year (a little later into February) where I talked about how, due to the somewhat narrow strip of land between driveways, the snow tends to pile up pretty deep. First up is the Red Fox Katsura tree that you can barely make out. It is a narrow, thin trunk. I planted this when I thought that our flowering pear tree was failing. Now, they're close together and we're going to have to make a choice. I know (already) which way I'm leaning.
Next up is the Bald Cypress tree that experienced a ton of growth this past year. This tree was once as skinny and thin as the Katsura, but has bulked up and now is clear to make out in the photo.
The snow for the Bald Cypress is about four inches or so BELOW the bottom branches. Looks similar to last year. These big piles of snow certainly help provide a D E E P watering once we start to see melting. That will be a good thing. I also have to start thinking in more detail about what I need to do to this bed - it is one of the ideas on my very early 2022 task list.
