Trees Are Good - The difference in temperature between our Pasture and Yard that we fondly call the Tunnel of Trees beginning July 29, 2014
This is another time that our trees have held in the night heat. The thermometer in our yard under the Tunnel of Trees is at 66 degrees while the pasture thermometer is at 62 degrees. Since our last post the St Johns River has been over flood stage twice.
On September 28, 2022 Hurricane Ian hit FL and put a hurting on Sanibel Island along with Ft Myers. It hit landfall there and went our Titusville but gave us a huge wind storm and about 6" of rain. Sanibel is wiped clean of homes but the Lighthouse survived. Hopefully that whole area including their trees will recover soon.
November 10, 2022 Hurricane Nicole hit Hutchinson Island just South of Vero Beach, went up to the Big Bend, hooked a right and went to Jacksonville and up through coastal GA. We had fewer smalls on the ground and it brought us about 3.5" of rain. The people in Sanford, Deland and Astor along the St Johns River are flooded again. Scary flooded!!
Fun Fact: Hurricanes Charlie and Jeanne hit 43 days apart in 2004.
18 years later Hurricanes Ian and Nicole took almost the same paths as Charlie and Jeanne and were also 43 days apart.
Florida's trees have taken a beating in the past few months but we are #FloridaStrong and we will bounce back!
It's 8:45 am and the Tunnel of Trees is warm this morning at 82 degrees. Tom's Tree Service is here to limb up some big and small stuff in the yard. They are good guys and understand our love for our trees. Some of these big limbs are right over the house and making Kenny and I a bit nervous.
Here are some before and after pics - not a true reflection since the after pics were taken at 1:15 pm
We're going to call that 89 degrees - The Pasture is loud and proud at 12:51 PM on Friday May 20th 2022! Welcome to Central Florida and May's humid days...
Happy Earth Day April 22, 2022 from Trees Are Good! The ongoing log (haha) of temperatures between a Pasture and The Tunnel of Trees in Eustis, FL
The Tunnel of Trees is running about 77 degrees at 10:45 AM this fine Friday on #EarthDay while the pasture is a very close 78 degrees. It's been windy for the past week and the temps have been cool because of that. It's dry though so we're hoping for some rain soon. Spring has sprung and the trees are beautiful shades of green with flowers such as Confederate Jasmine, Blue Flag Iris, Phlox and the Lantana you see behind the pasture thermometer are blooming everywhere! #HappyEarthDay to all!

It's March 3rd, 2022 and we are looking forward to celebrating #NationalArborDay in April! Trees R Good!
It's a beautiful sunny March day and at 12:15pm in the Tunnel of Trees at our home near Orlando, FL the thermometer reads 88 degrees!
It's not been over 68 degrees in 5 days but today January 28th, 2022 it's a beautiful 72! Trees are good!
This first picture is of a thermometer at 75 degrees in our yard which we call the
Tunnel of Trees!
The pic below was taken at the same time of day 2:50 pm but from our pasture which is a wide open area. They are running about the same today in celebration of #ArborDay 2022!
The Oaks and Pine Trees at our house have once again proven to help us stay warmer than where there are no trees! Sunday December 26, 2021
Our trees in the Tunnel of Trees seem to be holding in the heat...Could this be true? * Tuesday November 23, 2021 at 3:30 pm
We've seen this before where the Live Oaks, Laurel Oaks and Long Leaf Pine Trees in our yard seem to hold in the heat. It was 52 degrees at 7:00 am today and only reached a high of 65. At 3:30 today it's 63 degrees at our house where the Tunnel of Trees lives. Yet in the pasture where the sun has been shining it's still only 62 degrees. We've documented this in previous years on our Trees R Good blog. Once again the trees provide a great barrier to shelter us from heat and cold! Trees Are Good!
Just got back from spending the Summer working for NOC in Bryson City, NC. It was so awesome to be able to wear a light jacket to work in June and July. September 10th we arrived back in Central Florida. Wow!! It's been a warm last few weeks! Thank goodness for the shade of our yard...
The Tunnel of Trees has yet to hit 85 degrees but the Pasture is a sweltering 104 degrees!
So glad Fall has arrived!!
