People flock to Traverse City every year to see one of the most lovely displays of Mother Nature-the cherry blossoms. The flowers cover the miles of rolling mountains across the region, and with the attention they attract it's fair to say there are plenty of issues that go with them.
The region is dotted with cherry orchards so that some regions may see the appearance of flowers halfway through the month of May, while others may take longer. Typically, flowers are first found in the Acme and Williamsburg regions as trees in those regions are usually further away from the water, leading in slightly hotter blooming temperatures. Next, we've historically seen flowers starting in Benzie County, followed by Leelanau County's southern and middle portions. As we move north to Leelanau County's fruit-growing part, the flowers will follow with the recent flowers appearing in the Northport region and peninsula tip.
