The Weatherstick ® - History
The weather stick is approximately 40cm long. The stick will point upward with the onset of good weather (high pressure) and down as bad weather approaches (low pressure). The weather stick was first used by the natives of the American northeast and the Canadian east and southeast. They noticed the behavior of dry branches prior to the arrival of weather changes. The weather stick is a rare example of a weather prediction tool which predates the mercury barometer.
Weather sticks are made from the Balsam Fir. A Balsam Fir is a North American fir, native to most of eastern and central Canada and the northeastern United States. The tree is typically 14m to 20m tall with a narrow conic crown.
The Canadian weather stick has been predicting the weather for centuries. 100% natural and biodegradable. A perfect gift for gardeners of all ages.
