Education week on the Buckalew Blog...
This is a Politic Free Zone
I am angry, baffled, saddened, scared, and in mourning...
I'm afraid I am simply not prepared to discuss - for I have no words...
Thank you for understanding
Quaking Aspens are often confused with birch trees. Although aspen are somewhat
similar in appearance to some species of birch, birch trees belong to an entirely
different family of trees. Birch are famous for having bark that peels back like paper;
Aspen bark does not peel.
The other aspect of their lifestyle that makes them unique is that beneath
the thin white outer bark is a thin photosynthetic green layer that allows the
plant to synthesize sugars and keep growing even during the winter when
all other deciduous trees go into dormancy. This green layer of the bark
makes it survival food for deer and elk during hard winters.
