Prevailing Winds

Posted: May 27, 2010 in Ramblings
 
I recently learned about the concept of prevailing winds.  You probably knew about them already.  But we planted a tree in our back yard in 2007; it’s a birch tree, with multiple trunks.  I don’t have a picture from when it was first planted, but here’s a pic of it in wintertime, in the evening.
 

The tree has looked great for the past few years.  However, now that the fence-building has affected the flow of the prevailing winds, the tree looks like this.  Constantly.  This picture was taken when there was no wind.

I’m so sad!  We have lost a lot of tree height.  On the other hand, the fence is so high that we have gained privacy there.

The landscapers still haven’t contacted me about discussing the new plants.  I’ll report back later.
