Bench Y at Kuse Nature Preserve

Willow trees like to grow in moist areas and so, in about 1994, we planted this Niobi Weeping Willow near where water drains from the hill into the pond. We planted young bitternuts and other nut trees in this area. How many kinds of trees can you identify nearby? We have placed wire around many of them because deer and other wildlife damage trunks and branches of young trees.
