Hello. My name is Bo. I found this site due to my interest in old trees in Concord, MA. When I mention this to my friend, Susan, she mentioned that she had gone on a hike many-many years ago with the Robert Leverett, thus I sought out his name and found this website.
I visited Carlisle Pines in Carlisle, MA and saw the old trees which were approximated to have been a mature tree at the time of the revolution.
I didn't see Carlisle Pines, however, documented on the map where I thought old trees were noted. I may have misunderstood the purpose of the map.
Anyway, the girth of biggest looking tree (hemlock) was one inch shy of 12 feet. I suspect there are wider white pines, but didn't find them on this visit.
Anyway, if anyone knows of old trees in this area. I'd appreciate knowing and hearing how people use or are inspired by website. Thanks!
