1) Balsam fir healing from damage caused by fire 5 years ago. Note moss which illustrates relatively rapid growth - the moss colonized the tree after the fire. Truck keys for scale. 2) Rapidly growing Yellow birch and characteristic yellow/golden exfoliating bark. Rapid growth rate can be deduced from the stretched 'whitish' lenticels. 3) Ants emerging from holes in stump. Temp 2C.

I'll post the ants photo in a separate post. The uploading feature took a photo from the wrong folder.
