Early Blooms seen on Red Maples


Several patches of urban-planted Red maples were seen to have flower blooms as recently as Tuesday, January 6. This is one of the earliest Atlanta sightings in recent memory.

It appears the early bloomers are primarily cultivated varieties, most of which are near parking lots or landscaped areas.

Hey Jesse,

I think I saw a crabapple yesterday. I was in traffic on Scott near N. Decatur and couldn't slow. I"ll check it again this weekend.
