A few days ago, on January 20th, I went out to check Andy’s trees in the Morristown, NJ, area. The Crocuses were already an inch tall. Even though severe cold was forecast in the immediate future, the trees told me that the weather would be warming up by about February 4th. So, the trees are saying that there will be an early Spring.
Dr. Jim Conroy, The Tree Whisperer® said, “Specifically, the Maples said that they would be just starting to push up sap on January 24th.
“So, here it is, January 24th! Out I went. Temperature is 23 degrees with a wind-chill factor of about 4 degrees.
“I put my hands on the Oaks. I had no feelings. It’s just too early for them. I put my hands on the Maples. Sure enough, there it was. I could feel energy coming from the earth through the roots. Sap activity was beginning to move throughout the roots–not fully throughout the tree.
“I felt an interplay of Earth energy helping to push up, sun (Fire energy) intensity warming everything up, and Water energy just beginning to move in the sap itself.
“The Maples said that sap would be further up the trees within seven days (February 1st.) In previous years, sap was beginning to run in Maples in this area on February 1st, this is consistent.”
