Scent of Aspen tress
I have noticed a very distinct and pleasantly clean smell when traveling through Aspen groves. It becomes most noticeable when the road or trail dips down lower, possibly cooler temps and shade. No one I have spoken with at the Botanical Society or Forestry station seem to know why. I would like to know if it comes from the bark or the leaves or the sap? Is it year round or seasonal?
