Re: Green .Mount Cemetery Montpellier

I returned to this site with some new equipment--a proper diameter tape and a Hagelof EC D II measuring device. This device is so small that I need to take several measurements and average them. I think when I want the most accurate measurement possible with this device it would be good to meausre t...

Re: Lucien Morin County Park, Webster, NY

Re: A local hemlock of note

I have posted about this area before. I should change the name of my original post to "Old Growth Hemlock In East Montpelier". In fact, I should say, Holy #$#$, Old Growth Hemlock in my backyard! I've enjoyed walking and skiing in this area, and have brought friends and family to meet some of the gi...

Re: one last visit to the great oak

I was there in October, in town for a funeral, but that Oak called my family for a visit and we all paid our respects.

Tinker Brook Natural Area

This is my fifth post about Vermont's protected natural areas. Some contain old growth, and others second growth (Lord's Hill, Gifford Woods, OG; Tabletop Mountain, Cambridge Pines--second growth).
