Trees in My Yard Acording to Audubon

I recently picked up an old copy of the The Audubon Societies Field Guide to North American Trees – Eastern Region. While the plot our house sits on seems to be surrounded by trees there are actually just three trees on our property. According to the society which bares the name of John James Audubon, we have a Red Maple, a Silver Maple, and a Pear tree on our site.

Because its autumn and the leaves have begun to change I figured I’d go with their description of the fall varieties of our trees.

In the late summer we eat the pears from this tree, they are good with goat cheese.

Man I miss trees that change colors. Cactus are green all year long here in Tucson.
