What Tree is That?

Did you know that a large Oak tree can drop thousands of acorns in one year?

Or that trees are able to communicate and defend themselves against attacking insects? 

Get to know the names and assets of some of Maine’s 66 native tree species and how to identify them.

Fall is an excellent time to learn to identify native trees by their leaves and fruits, branch, and bark patterns. 

Enjoy a walk on southern Maine’s beautiful trails and meet the trees.

Trees of the Solstices & Other Earth Celebrations

Did you know that Elder (Sambucus) is one of the trees of Samhain, the Celtic festival celebrating the harvest and the beginning of Winter? 

Samhain is a time of death and rebirth.  Elder is the perfect tree to invite in for this festival because it is a tree of endings and beginnings.

Meet the trees and plants associated with the eight Celtic festivals that celebrate and honor the Earth’s seasons, including the summer and winter solstices.

Celebrating the seasons helps you reconnect to the Earth and Nature.  Inviting and spending time with the plants for each festival helps deepen your connection.
