Gary, I went to Gautier, Ms., this moring to visit my parents. On the way back to Gulfport I stopped in nearby Ocean Springs, to check for budding on some Tulips I know of. Two of the four had bud swell and the other two had leaf out. These trees are growing near a small bayou just adjacent to a marshy area. I reported on them last year when flowering. These four trees are between 75-100 years old, I'm basing that on some tulips I had on property that went down in Hurricane Georges in 1998 that I had lumber cut out of. The four trees have heights to around 75' and CBH 10-12', these trees flood every hurricane and had around 4-6' saltwater during Hurricane Katrina in 05 with little effect.
Black Cherry- leaf out, Black Willow- leaf out also. The same lat, long as my previous post for a reference, they are only 15 miles east of last post. N30 23.526 W89 01.148 I can keep an eye out for flowers and get better measurements if needed.
