another state deficit
I took this picture of cedar berries last week and immediately thought of it after reading this short bulletin in yesterday's N&O. It turns out the state's forestry service is desperate for red cedar seeds. I may give them a ring. But since I don't own this tree and I am not sure if it belongs to the city of Durham or Duke University, I may just volunteer to strip some lower limbs myself and say they came from my property. It is the heaviest berry producing cedar I have ever seen... hence my willingness to step in. The only protests would probably come from the birds, but there's plenty for them too.
