From the Forum – Lost Coat and Looking for Serviceberries

Lost Coat at 9:30 Club:

“I was at the 9:30 Club for the RIAA Christmas party/Ne-Yo concert on Thur Dec. 12, and I believe someone took my coat thinking it was theirs. It’s a black Liz Claiborne pea coat. If you have it please let me know!”

Looking for serviceberries:

“Hi PoPville! Serviceberries won’t be ripe for picking until late spring/early summer, but I wonder, does anyone know of any trees on public or friendly property? Or PERHAPS — long shot, maybe — perhaps someone out there has a tree that’s just so fruitful they don’t know what to do with the whole bounty. Here’s maybe the best come-on you’ll hear all day: next year may I pick your berries?

In all seriousness, these trees are really lovely (red leaves in fall, covered with white flowers in spring) and the berries are stinkin’ delicious. Any other denizens here interested in foraging and native plants? I like plants and I want to try all of the growy, planty things.”

  • Hi “Looking for Serviceberries!”

    We saw your comment on Wednesday and immediately went to work gathering our species information for serviceberries. Feel free to check out our “Tree of the Month,” a few short highlights of the species with links to a our Tree Species library as well – but the highlight of what you’ll see is a map with all the serviceberries we’ve helped plant to-date!

    It’s at the bottom of the Tree of the Month: Enjoy!
