Record rowan budburst when the scales burst to reveal the leaves which are very hairy to start with, so almost white in colour (not green).

 If you have recorded rowan events before, continue to record on the same tree.

Expected Date Range: mid-March to late April 

Available historic data: we have records from 1999
