North Carolina-Trees-May 16


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-May 16

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

North Carolina is fortunate to have a great diversity of woody plant species in its extensive forests, with approximately 655 species of trees, shrubs, subshrubs, and woody vines (491 native and 164 introduced).

I was kinda amazed to learn that there are over 200 different trees that are native to North Carolina.

North Carolina’s native trees reflect the widely varying terrain of the state. Trees growing along the coastal plains are adapted to sandy, salty conditions. The mild climate and rolling foothills of the Piedmont region produce trees typically seen in temperate zones, such as crab apples, elms, ashes and wild plums. Pines, maples, oaks and other large trees are found throughout the western part of the state and the mountainous Smoky Mountain and Blue Ridge areas.

If you want the link below will let you download a guide to common NorthCarolina Trees.
