I want to remind the readers of this magazine that the articles presented here are only a part, usually just the beginning, of the discussions being held on our BBS at http://www.ents-bbs.org .  The full discussion can be read by clicking on the link embedded in the title of each individual article.

Joining the Native Tree Society
People have asked how to join the Native Tree Society.  To be a formal member of the NTS go to the home page: http://www.ents-bbs.org  of our BBS and click on the “Register” link on the upper right side of the page below the heading ucp.php?mode=register  Creating an account and becoming a member is free.  We do not charge any dues for participation.
The form asks you to create a user name and a password, and has a short form to fill out. Most people, and it is easier for me also, use their real name as a username, but that isn’t required. The system will create an account and send you a verification email to which you need to respond to activate the account.
This article explains how everything works: viewtopic.php?f=166&t=23

Submitting material to the eNTS Magazine
To submit material for inclusion in the magazine the process is pretty simple for most material. People post messages to the BBS discussion list, and I pull them off the list and compile them to create a monthly magazine. The magazine includes most of the initial posts made in each discussion thread, and those follow-up posts that seem to e relevant or add additional material I find of interest. (I like photos, so if a follow-up has a good photo I usually include it.) So to submit something create an account on the BBS and post the report there.  Posting to the BBS is in effect permission to reprint the post in the magazine, but I often follow-up with a more formal email request if there may be some question about reproduction of material or photos.
If there some special circumstances, material for inclusion in the eNTS Magazine can be emailed to me at edfrank@nativetreesociety.org  

This month we have has some fantastic article.  Bart Bouricius   provided reports form the Amazon Basin in Peru.  Kouta Rasenan, Jeroen Philippona, amd Michael Spraggon continued with the final reports from the Balkan Pennisula Expedition.  Eli Dickerson submitted several reports form the Atlanata area in Georgia.  Brian Beduhn is a measuring machine with reports from North Carolina.  Robert Leverett reports on trees and the ancient Ohia forests in Hawaii.  We have a report of a new record Bay laurel from California by Zane Moore.  We have reports of other sites from new members and longtime members.  There was a beautiful set of snow and rime photos from the Roan Highlands on the NC TN border taken by James Robert Smith.  National Geographic Magazine released an article on canopy mapping of the President Sequoia, Will Blozan was a participant in that effort.
Something different in this months issue is that I have included a series of web links of articles posted on our Native Tree Society Facebook page that did not appear on the BBS.  Be sure to check out these articles.

"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
