I'm Following a Tree
A Growing List!
It's now 2013
I'm updating this list.
The links in bold are to
blogs I know are continuing
with Tree Following this year.
If you are too, please let me know
by leaving a comment on this page.
Once the list is up to date,
I'll re-do it to make it look neater!
And - don't forget Treeblogging
which aggregates posts about trees
from a wide range of blogs.
Many were disappointed when Natalie's 'Tree Year' came to an end. Some had been 'following' a tree or trees for a while and it had been good to be in touch with others doing the same. Others, newly inspired to observe a particular tree through its seasons had become so attached to 'their' tree, they wanted to carry on.
But enabling such connections can take much time and . . . a year is, after all, a year! Enormous thanks to Natalie for the work she put into this!
I have been observing several trees over the last few years - not as a scientist, more as an interested neighbour and, now the 'official' Tree Year has come to an end, I'm offering a way, through Loose and Leafy, for 'Tree Followers' to keep in touch.
It will be very unsophisticated . . . simply let me know if you are following the life of a particular tree, a particular group of trees, plants growing round an individual tree, life on a fallen or felled tree, a woodland path It may be a young tree you have planted in your garden. It may be a mature tree growing wild. The special point is to go back to the same place through the year and see what's happening. There's no minimum or maximum number of posts - just a continuing connection with a tree.
Whenever you post about 'your' tree, let me know and I'll put a link to it from the end of the latest post on Loose and Leafy. And there'll be space in the sidebar for announcing additions to the list and other 'news'.
Everything about Tree Following here is very informal, very loose - often leafy!
(If you'd like to use the tree motif on your blog to show you are taking part - please feel free to do so.)
