This little tree has only been here for a little over a year now and it doesn’t seem to have grown at all, but that’s the way with trees. I think we pay them lots of attention when they’re first planted and then forget them. All at once they’re taller than us and thick-trunked and a proper tree.
I was glad to see some of the nice fall color that sour gums are known for… though I waited too long to get a pic of it. If I remember right, last fall the leaves never showed much change in color before they dropped. It was nice to see a hint of red out there, finally.
