Re: Black Guides of Mammoth Cave

Bravo Ed! Bravo! I was able to watch the 8pm - 9pm broadcast on KET and wow, very informative. Beyond telling a very important story that needed to be told, I think that the way slavery was dealt with by those that were interviewed was extremely powerful. It's going to cause a lot of viewers to refl...

Re: Book Impressions – Nature’s Temples by Joan Maloof

Joe, I agree with your thoughts around old-growth trees and volume. Here are couple quotes from some of the studies I've seen: “Thus, large, old trees do not act simply as senescent carbon reservoirs but actively fix large amounts of carbon compared to smaller trees; at the extreme, a single big tre...

In today's NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/24/business/energy-environment/deforestation-brazil-bolivia-south-america.html Joe, Interesting article, especially the maps showing deforestation over time. Humans, unfortunately, will continue to come up with any host of reasons/stories/rationalizat...

Book Impressions – Nature’s Temples by Joan Maloof

NTS, I got permission from the writer of this book review to link to it from my forestreporter.com website. Just go to this page ( https://forestreporter.com/ ) and I'll keep the book review link anchored at the top of the Newsfeed for a few weeks. I have also read the book and highly recommend it; ...

Re: Measuring Fusions

Don, Great example. It's a strong reminder that nature is "wiggly" - seldom in straight lines or geometric shapes and in a constant state of change. As an avid tree measurer I definitely think it's worth the effort to try to straighten out this wiggly world:) I used to get concerned about the validi...

List of Old-Growth Forests Under Threat

NTS, I'm currently putting together and plan on maintaining a list of publicly-owned threatened old-growth forests in the United States and am interested to hear which ones you may know about. I'd rather hear about a forest even if its old-growth status is debatable based on varying definitions, so ...

Re: Tree Haiku

Not exactly Haiku but within the same vein nonetheless. Not about trees either but something we all depend on regardless, including trees. Besides, I'm all snowed in today! Winter cube Spring rivulets of Summer pool, Fall on rising mist ... Very nice, I like that very much. Here are two of my favor...

Re: Fairywood or the enchanted forest

John, Wow, I'd like to walk down that trail. The only time I've seen oaks packed in that closely are Gambel oaks (much smaller) in Colorado. Regarding Facebook, much of the traffic on that platform is dominated by what I think of as dualistic thinking, basically just pitting one group of humans agai...
