It's going to be a long spring of picking damn manitoba maple seedlings out of my yard. My neighbour has one of those trees in his yard and when I went out with the dog this am my whole back yard was covered in the dman little heliocpter seeds that had blown off his tree.

dog was freaked out by the wind as well.

It was very windy for sure today. It's nice that it is warm outside and not as cold as it was as well. I think you'll see the Oilers warming up as well in the near future.

Afairc different types of trees have those. They aren't leaves. They are seed bearing evolutionary adaptations that utilize helicopter type blade motion to disperse their seeds over a wide range.
One of the countless wonders of nature. If these things were rare they would be considered amazing.

ps I have only coniferous trees on my property so its not me, just figured I'd mention that, haha

You're not embracing the environment well grasshopper. Walk in one, hand in hand with nature, let it flow...
