Re: Bear attack! (On my Doug-fir tree?!?!)

Douglas-fir trees in Scotland?

This past weekend I went to a tall ships festival in Fairport Harbor, Ohio to see the Draken Harald Hårfarge Viking longship, which had sailed across the North Atlantic Ocean this past spring to get to North America and the Great Lakes. The Draken has a 79-foot mast hand-crafted from a Douglas-fir l...

Re: A notable tree holiday

Thanks for the photos! Are you going to the south island during your trip? Maybe Abel Tasman National Park or even Fiordland National Park?
