Aspen Eyes

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 4 February 2016 in Plant & Nature.

Aspen eyes are actually dark markings on the main trunk where side branches used to be. Quaking Aspens have tall, straight, mostly unbranched lower trunks which they achieve through rigorous self-pruning.
