This natural barometer has been predicting the highs and lows of New England's weather for years. Mounted outside a window, the sprig will point up indicating fair weather and when foul weather approaches, it points down. Since it is actually cut from Maine's abundant Balsam fir trees, the sizes will vary, but generally the sprig is about a foot long and the base is around 2-1/4" tall x 3/8" wide with a pre-drilled hole for nailing.

MAINE WEATHER STICK
Jan 30, 2011 | By Elizabeth Star
I have had weather sticks before. This one is the best, very thin and responsive!

I bought one of these some time ago and finally installed it on the side of a tree in my backyard. It is indeed very responsive to the weather, and a charming addition to my yard.

I've always wanted one of these weather "sticks." It's great to know they work well in Alaska too!

Haven't had a chance to see it in the rain yet as CA is in the middle of a drought.

Purchased a replacement weather stick from you to replace one damaged by a friend at our cabin. It works better than any weatherman!
Jokes on me!

I purchased the Maine Weather Stick as a joke for a friend and bought one for myself. I'll be darned it really works! It's actually fun to watch!
Fun to watch the weather forecast

This "magic stick" is a fun way to see what's in store for us weatherwise. If the weather will be good, it goes up. If we are in for bad weather, it goes down.
Balsam Weather Branch/Stick
Jun 7, 2016 | By Angie Gromlich
I love my Balsam Branch/Stick. Other then it being something I can peek at to check what Mother Nature may be sending our way, it's a great conversation piece. I love to be able to educate others on the history of how people used Mother Nature to predict and live their lives before technology evolved.

I have had a weather stick outside my kitchen window for many years and have found it to be more reliable that weather forecasters. Therefore, I bought 4 as gifts for my special friends.
