  Tree List
A tree is a woody plant with a single trunk and a distinct canopy, usually growing more than 15 ft (4.6 m) tall. Trees can be broad-leaved or needle-leaved and evergreen or deciduous. Broad-leaved deciduous trees create shade in the summer and let the sun through in the winter. Evergreens make the best screens and provide year-round color. Before placing trees in the landscape, consider their ultimate size. It's sad to have to remove a healthy, tall and handsome tree because it was planted too close to the house.

Kentucky Bright Leaf

tobacco flower Around this time of year farmers here in Kentucky remove the flower buds from the waist-high tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) plants. Sometimes they miss a few, like this on, and the showy, fragrant flowers make an appearance.
