Northern White Cedar is one of the five most common trees in Michigan. The Anishinaabe regard the cedar as an important ceremonial plant and one of the four sacred medicinal trees. Cedar is also known as Arborvitae, which translates into “tree of life”. A group of early (1535) French voyageurs traveling to America became sick with scurvy after spending months at sea. Luckily for the voyageurs, the Anishinaabe came to their rescue by making a Vitamin-C rich tea using cedar leaves, saving their lives.

Much loved by builders of wooden boats!

Here is a pic from the cedars at south manitou A couple weeks ago when the family and I went over there!

And their roots spread outwards which make these giant beauties susceptible to toppling with high winds and heavy snows. 8/2015

Sacred to many groups.

The National Park Service tells the stories of workers and the labor movement that strived to improve lives. From the laborers who built the Cheseapeake & Ohio Canal and laid the tracks of the first transcontinental railroad, to the “mill girls” who made cloth in Lowell’s textile factories, to the striking employees of Chicago’s Pullman Company, to the founder of the country's first permanent agricultural union, you’ll find their stories in parks. Learn more at www.nps.gov/subjects/labor/about.htm

Go Pullman and the worker’s movement !

Don't let the president know about these divisive and un-American programs. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

Five Shores Brewing

LDW! Halfway through this Summer 👉 Fall milestone weekend and we are so grateful for each and every kind word. This Summer was our first, so different was always going to be expected! The feedback on the Five Shores Beer Garden and Steelhead Café was more than encouraging. Thank you so much
🙏
Somehow we've been able to think about the months ahead and what Five Shores will look like as the leaves and temps start to drop. Let's just say we've got some pretty incredible things planned, and some irons in the bonfire. Keep checking for the new stuff we'll be introducing in the coming weeks
🍻
Come say Hi! And grab some cans To-Go if we won't see you for awhile 😥 Thank you, All!!

This was the first day of my attempt of a PCT thru hike. I miss that feeling on that day. I hope next year to get a permit, with some luck.

Sometimes it’s tough to stay strong. To feel like I can get out there again. I keep looking back to keep that same drive I had. 2020 has been a tough year. Not just for me, but for all.

I hope you all keep your heads up and keep pushing for your dreams.

Yes! You are glowing; your obvious joy is contagious. If not the big journey, maybe smaller ones in the meantime. 💝 Thanks for sharing this!

I hope that you get the opportunity to go again. We want to follow your adventure.

I hope you make it back there one day.

The trees, especially the young trees in town need your help! The weather in the Traverse City area has been dry and hot, leaving trees struggling to thrive. Small trees that need more water can have pale, wilted leaves or die-back of twigs and branches. We’re asking for your assistance in making sure that the trees we plant within the right of way in front of your home or business thrive! Below are tips to follow for the first four years that a tree is in place, especially during dry periods.

With your support we can greatly improve the survival rate of our urban forestry assets and as a result benefit the environment, the community and property owners within the City. #ThankYou

1. WATER once a week during the growing season (May to October) with approximately 10 gallons per week.

2. DO NOT mound wood chips or mulches up around the tree trunk. Keep mulch free from grass and weeds because they compete with the tree for water and food.

3. DO NOT use tree wrap on the trunk or stake the tree for support.

4. DO NOT hit this tree with your mower or line trimmer.

5. A little fertilizer after the first full year of growth will help. Slow release granular garden fertilizer or tree spikes are recommended.
