    And the excitement builds! A person might think that the excited anticipation, like a small child on Christmas Eve, would eventually diminish. Been 15 or 16 years for me, so if it does go away, you'll have to ask someone who's been at it longer than I have what it's like! Have fun! Ted

    Look at the twigs. Maple twigs have the little branches directly across from each other where as oaks and others are staggered. The only other tree (I believe) that has the branches directly across from one another is the Ash and it's very easy to tell them apart. With that being said, it's not always easy to see the twigs when they are way up high.
