Also, I welcome networking and sharing opportunities as well!
Hackberry may be ho-hum in some respects but I find the ridged bark interesting. It also hosts the Hackberry Emperor caterpillar.
ONAPA Ohio Natural Areas and Preserves just shared a page of yours that brought me here. I hope to visit again as this looks quite interesting and helpful.

You are very generous in sharing so much info about an understanding that is very simple, yet, may be hard to grasp for a very tired mind, nice work!
I find these very informative and I enjoy looking at them before I go to sleep. Very relaxing. Thank you
It's very informative and useful option for the daily online readers.
