Dune Trees

It can’t be easy for a tree to live in a sand dune.  There’s not a lot of soil for the roots to hang on to and the sand is always shifting around. Relentless wind off the ocean mixed with a thick salt spray would annoy me terribly if I were a tree.  Add a harsh winter to that and one could be left wondering how in the world a tree ever survives in a dune here on PEI.  But they do.
