Fruiting on a Peltophorum africanum tree in January may be as lavish an affair as on this tree. In human terms too out of breath for many leaves; they can return once the pods are dry and seed production is accomplished.
In tree history this will go down as a good year. In nature a plant paces itself, flourishing in peak years, going slower in average ones and skipping seasons in hard times.
In modern monoculture farming the bank does not allow the farmer annual production pace changes. The signs of a weak crop year are responded to by adding fertiliser, irrigation or whatever science dictates, to make trees or annuals perform maximally every year.
Like force-feeding geese to deliver livers for foie gras.
