    Here's some pics that a client sent me. She is wanting to know what kind of tree it is. I'm thinking it's a Forest Pansy Red bud.

    Just want to confirm it.

    Thanks.

    no question it is a redbud, can't tell the scale (size) of leaves real well. But probably is.

    Leaf looks like a red bud...but the form looks like no red bud I've seen.

    I'm almost positive that it is a Forest Pansy redbud, but the leaf size is throwing me off. I might go to town today and take a look at it in person.

    I've planted a few forest pansy's and if I remember correctly, the leaves were much bigger.

    I do believe it is a red-bud though, just a matter of which one.

    Forget the leaf size, look at the color. Forest pansy is only redbud with this color scheme

    Yes, but I've planted a few forest pansy's in the last year and all the leaves seemed to be twice the size as the one in the pic. I think I'll have to see it in person to make a correct analysis. It might have to wait until next spring though, as the leaves are turning now.

    I'm 85% sure it is a forest pansy, but here is where my logic kicks in.

    If it isn't a forest pansy, the color could be due to....

    Full exposure to the sun as a red-bud is more of an understory tree
    Fert or PH issues,
    amount of moisture it is receiving
    and if it is diseased or healthy

    I've seen some ornamental trees exhibiting some odd colors this year due to all the fungus, disease, heavy rains, and cool temps we've had, so I'm not going to rule anything out this year.

    Yah, definitely a Forest Pansy Redbud. I've seen them in all shapes and sizes. And the leaf color could be due to anything. But regardless, that's a Forest Pansy Redbud if I ever saw one.

    Hey, thanks Jim. I'm 99.9% sure it is also.

    How's your season been ??

    A little up and down. But mostly up. 2009 was WAY better than 2008 in terms of profitability. And we're still landing jobs too. We just landed the 2nd largest install job of the year 2 weeks ago. Great job for this time of year. And landed 2 other larger install jobs as well. We're booked out for most of November right now. I've never been booked up in November before. Maybe a few days or a week out. But business is typically pretty sparse this time of year and we're still signing contracts, doing jobs, and I am still even big bids for installs every day. We even had 2 irrigation system installs in Oct. and 1 in Nov. That almost never happens either. Been a good year overall but great fall so far!

    Considering Oregon still has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, I think we've been fairing pretty well.

    How 'bout you guys?/
