WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- An abundance of snow and rain, ample sunshine and moderate temperatures over the last year have assisted Mother Nature is creating an arboreal landscape of life-like creatures, geometric designs and crawling vines throughout Westchester County.

Photo Album Nature's Sculptures Alive In Westchester County

A short road trip, bike ride, hike or nature walk along local highways, back roads, hiking trails, parks and even back yards reveals an overgrowth of tree and plant life that is a living Rohr Shock test evoking, "That looks like a dinosaur", "Look, a giant chair" or "It's a spider crossing the wire".

The extra-leafy spring and summer predict an even more spectacular fall filled with the same sculptures in gold, yellow, brown, orange and red foliage.

Send your photos of nature's sculptures you find and to dlopriore@dailyvoice.com and we will post them on Daily Voice.

Regarding invasive vines smothering trees along our parkways, it's encouraging to know of the organized volunteer vine-cutters who go out weekend after weekend removing these invasive non-native stranglers along the Bronx River Parkway. A Westchester County-sponsored group, they are supplied with the necessary equipment and are always in need of more volunteers.

Sorry, when I saw the title of this article, I was assuming something different. Not an invasive vine that has covered nature and structures, suffocating it. If you drive down the highways, these vines are strangling the trees. Years ago the problem was brought up, but nothing was done. The problem is now massive. Sad.
