Re: What Charley taught us

That probably explains a big part of it, Donna. Although some of the trees--the slash pines, for example--are sturdier than most and seem hurricane resistant. But they don't like wet feet or salt spray, so are limited to higher elevations, like the plantation, which is 28 feet above sea level and 5 miles inland. There are probably two dozen of them on the five or six lots around us; we have six. They provide a terrific canopy and a very interesting microclimate [no frost in 6 years].

So wondering if that is why there are not many tall natives down there... they just don't have enough time inbetween hurricanes to grow.
