Pine Hollow Arboretum intern Mary R Martin has send some photos she took this year. Even with the long June dry spell, the bed of the Arboretum hollow had managed to stay moist. John Abbuhl reports that the new seedlings planted in the bottom clay soil this Spring are still alive and doing well. The few sandy hills and better drained banks that slope down to the hollow are the areas where a few plantings look like they are suffering damage and one or two of the new Spring seedlings planted there appear to have not made it. John cautions, you have to wait a couple of years to see how a new planting is doing.
