Happy Arbor Week, Oklahoma!

Oklahoma, which is home to six silo trees, celebrates trees the last full week of March, so Happy Arbor Week, Oklahoma!

Oklahoma’s State Tree is the Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis). Redbuds are extremely easy to spot in the spring as they are absolutely covered in pink flowers. Those flowers are not only lovely, but they are EDIBLE and make a colorful and tasty addition to salads.

    Ryan, my mother and I taste-tested redbud flowers last weekend. They are tasty! A bit like red cabbage.
