    Great video, but I wonder if anyone else laughed when they heard β€œfive sprigs, five letters w-i-t-e” πŸ˜‚



  8. Rambler Rose on July 31, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    I’m so excited! According to this video, I have 3 red oak saplings growing at the border in my back yard!!! There are black walnuts growing a few feet to the south and west of them though so if they grow faster, or poison them with their juglone, they may Abort their development. If not however, I wonder how many years it will take for them to mature to 7 or so feet tall?

  33. Cheri Green on July 31, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Also I read there is a star in the twig of a cottonwood when you break it in half. Wonderful video and very helpful!



  34. Harold Shipley on July 31, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Many years ago I lived on the extreme north side of Memphis, Tn. Walking in the woods one day I came upon the weirdest looking nut I had ever seen. Kind of like a black walnut except elongated a lot and a much lighter color. Kind of sticky also. Turned out to be a butternut. The nuts are very mild and WAY more work than they are worth. I do love trees though. Butternut lumber, also known as white walnut, is quite pretty.



  35. David Bueso on July 31, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Wow I learned a lot. Great video. Thank you so much!πŸ‘

  38. Grey Beard on July 31, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Wow what a coincidence My father was James Wright and he worked in the woods he knew every tree by bark and leaf also.



  39. MonkofWar on July 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    White is spelled w-h-i-t-e.



  40. Steve Carlson YouTube channel on July 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm

  41. Mixwell1983 on July 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Just moved to TN a few months ago nad trying to ID some of the trees on my property. From memory (its night here) I believe 2 types of trees that look familiar by leaves and bark are a maple and I believe ash. I will use this tomorrow and take some pictures and revisit this video to see if i can further ID and confirm my types. There are at least 3 different types in the woods behind my house.

    I do have nuts that drop that look like black walnut or hickory nut. They almost look like limes and then turn brown. Here em falling through the trees all the time now that ita Fall



  42. M Frusciante on July 31, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Yea I might seem a little uh speculative w this but one day soon you’ll be able to walk into the woods while wearing ar glasses and see the species of trees/plants you’re looking at. As if you have Google integrated into your visual field. Not as if, it will be. Cool eh



  43. Sky Lovecraft on July 31, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Plz do videos on what parts of which plants are edible and medicinal



  44. Patryk Lewandowski on July 31, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    As much I love these videos you MUST put down the scientific names and area you are at. Not everybody murican.



  45. Jeremy Bertram on July 31, 2022 at 11:16 pm
