It got to 36.4° C in England yesterday and expected to beat that today. The Met office on the news last night, stated that the UK must expect temperatures of 40° C in future Summers. My first thoughts were, 'how are maples going to survive this'. They can cope with the cold when they are dormant, but not extreme heat. Will they adapt?? Probably not!!!! Oh well, we have seen this coming and have been warned for some decades.
