Its Not Easy Being Green

Its Not Easy Being Green

Someone recently told me that in Hawaii - trees don't have rings because we don't have seasons. I'm not sure if this is true, but the reasoning I was given was ... that the rings are caused by the dormant period trees undergo during winter months, and since Hawaii doesn't have winter, trees don’t have a dormant period ... therefore no rings.

I attempted to look at these logs for rings, but they were covered with moss, and otherwise deteriorated so badly that I’m afraid if there were any rings I wouldn’t have been able to see them anyway. So, I’m either spreading rumors or a cool fact … I’ll let you decide.

Hope you all have a lovely day …

Very interesting rumour/fact! I work at the Forestry Commission here in Scotland so I'll see if I can shed some light. Why is it that even a mossy look looks pretty in the right light? :)

Oh, I like the appearance of Kermit when you hover over the photo. Reminds me of my favorite show when I was young 'The Muppet Show'
