Zurich Bog old growth? (Newark NY)

I just ran into reference to old growth in a bog, about halfway between Rochester and Syracuse (near Newark, NY). Anybody know anything about this one? Map at; http://www.bergenswamp.org/Maps/Zurich_Map&Directions.pdf http://web.co.wayne.ny.us/wayne-county-planning-department/draft-minutes-may-1...

Old Growth in PA near Elmira NY? Rickets Glen? Bark Cabin?

Re: Allegany State Park

I visited Allegany last winter and deciphered Bruces directions for the old growth patch at the old stone bridge (fairly near the office) and hiked a bit in the snow to the left (easy) side of the bridge. The thing is- it looked nothing like old growth areas I have seen before. The book did mention ...

Re: Typical age of 20" diam Hemlock in climax forest?

Here are some photos of trees at IBM Glen. The biggest Hemlock in the woods at the top of the gorge seemed to be around 20" diam (lots of them). In the gorge I saw 2 or 3 that were much larger.

Typical age of 20" diam Hemlock in climax forest?

I was hiking in IBM Glen (NY state- fingerlakes) which has a nature preserve and says that the Hemlocks are old growth. Many trees were marked for cutting before a last minute reprieve and conversion to a preserve. These trees seem a bit small for old growth (typ. 20" diam). Question: do hemloc...

Re: Posting of directions to Old Growth Forests?

I find that in looking for OG places to visit, I need to do extensive research )thank goodness for the internet!) to locate most of them. Most often I have only a place name (ie; Smith Woods) to go on and find bits and pieces of info from 20 or more sites and can figure out where a place may be. I w...

Posting of directions to Old Growth Forests?

I notice that many OG forests get mentioned here, but not so many directions or exact locations are given. Is this by design to keep large quan. of people out of the forest? I suggest that those willing to read, assimilate, travel to, and hike in such a forest will provide the respect that it deserv...

Re: Old Growth Areas near the Finger Lakes?

re: Watkins Glen
Is that a patch of OG forest, or just random trees in the glen? Been to the Glen, but not any forest around there.
