When my camera couldn’t capture this horizontally, I turned it sideways to photograph the trees.
I like them this way better than in the “normal” orientation.
Put your left ear on your left shoulder to see what I mean.
p.s. I took this photo four years ago but didn’t label it. Based on their bark I think these are sugar maples … but their branches don’t look right.

Looks like the alders chopped by the beavers in your latest blog
Not a maple. Maples have opposite branching, & that tree has alternate branching.
The things I remember from years & years of Maple Festivals!
Opposite & Alternate Branching:
Exactly my thoughts about the tree. Wrong branches for a maple.
The maple’s opposite branching habit is one of the ways to IDENTIFY maples (for tapping) — because you tap them before they leaf out!
Yeah…I’ve been to a lot of Maple Festivals.
