    Moose in 5-1 eating this plant. What is it?



    Moose in Region 5-1 are browsing heavily on this plant. Itís in most of the slashes and in amongst the stands of replanted pine trees. Can anyone identify what it actually is?

    thanks Steve

    Shortroot is probably right, is that a type of birch?
    There is an app for you phone called plant net, you take a photo of the leaf or flower and it will tell you what it is.
    If the world is warming why are there so many new snowflakes?

    If we are all equal why do you demand special treatment?

    These appear to be a small bush as opposed to a tree. Never saw any taller than about 10”. We watched a cow and calf browsing on them.

    Majority of the egg heads on EIA's this year were running with a free App called "Seek".
    Downloaded it and use it all the time.

    More than fairly accurate.

    I suspect Falsebox after watching a few videos on it but I never saw any taller ones as shown in the videos.

    None the less it was the food being eaten right now by moose in 5-1 rather than the red willow which is what we initially thought they might be eating now.

    It does, but I don’t think it’s browsed on by moose.
