River Birch Trees...Wet Feet... And Plumsteadville Pa

from: William James




I have heard that WET FEET are NOT bad for ME-



-says the River Birch tree.



For humans, wet feet are VERY bad and cause "Athlete's Foot"
fungus on the skin. The soles of our feet are where the most
sweat cells, the densest concentration in our whole body, are
found. That's why athletes who sweat so much often get the foot
problem which also got their name. And what happens to our skin
when we stay in the bathtub or swim too long?



As for trees, some trees actually DIE if the soil that
immediately surrounds them is very wet. CONSTANTLY wet. Just ask
any Norway Spruce tree.



Maybe you want to drink a lot of water when you run, or do a
workout, or heavy physical labor. Well, similarly, trees that
grow fast and grow large, want to drink a lot of water too. But,
they don't want to stay permanently immersed in it!



That's part of the problem with clay soil, the poor drainage and
moisture retention. Some clays can hold water over 40 times
their volume. Wow.



Even when rainfall is below average, there are areas on most any
property where water collects and the ground is especially wet.



So, look for low spots, look where perhaps where there are
springs where groundwater constantly rises, and what about
looking for where gutters and storm drains empty? Then, plant a
River birch Tree right there and watch it grow! The following
web sites provide River Birch trees in the Plumsteadville area:
