I’m not going to teach or preach but just ask you to tell me what you think is causing I took these pictures of cherry blossoms opening up on trees in Rochester NY on December 3rd. I’m pretty sure they aren’t supposed to. I’m not too concerned for the health of the tree at this point since the flowers are more about future trees than the health of these. I am a little worried about what all of the polinators that feed off of these flowers will find when spring actually shows up and they all wake up hungry; but what makes me more nervous is that this seems like yet another canary in a coal mine for a larger problem than the bee food shortage of 2016.
I’m not going to teach or preach but just ask you to think and tell me in the comments section what you think is causing these cherry blossoms to open up in on trees in Rochester NY on December 3rd. Should we worry???
