Re: Tree Haiku

NTS, With the inclusion of celebrating trees through poetry and other means in the NTS mission statement, I'll continue to share in this thread any of my published poems in which trees make an appearance. In addition, if anyone holds the common belief in popular culture that English-language haiku a...

Re: Ute Council Tree

Just an update on this tree. Looks like in 2017 it was dropping some branches and deemed to be a hazard. Denver Post confirmation of tree being cut down: https://www.denverpost.com/2017/08/26/ute-council-tree-delta-cut-down/ Photo of 10' stump: https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/ute-council-tree

Re: Larry Tucei's Pine and More

Elijah, I haven't seen anything official, but for now it appears that they are going with a strategy of using "enter at your risk" signs and doing trail maintenance as necessary. In the wilderness area I think they're required to leave the snags alone. In the special management area, it wouldn't sur...

Re: Larry Tucei's Pine and More

NTS, It's really nice to see the BBS up and running. Thanks Ed! (probably) I visited Hermosa Creek in November 2019 and will be reporting on some of the superlatives there. Many survived the 416 fire, many didn't. With the time I had I didn't go farther than Dutch Creek and Clear Creek, so I won't h...

Re: Trees around Telluride - just photos

NTS, I was back in Colorado in late September/early October of this year. It was the fifth year in a row starting with the NTS Old-Growth Conference in 2014 - fond memories. This was the second time driving it. It's amazing the variety of landscapes. Last time I came down from Wyoming, but this time...

Re: Tree Haiku

Bob, All,

Here's the aforementioned tree-related haiku. It's on The Heron's Nest now (page 7 at http://www.theheronsnest.com), so I'm allowed to share it.

It was inspired by two blue ashes I saw at Masterson Station Equestrian Facility in Lexington, KY.

Re: Where is NTS Going

...but perhaps we should consider the amount of unregistered visitors the BBS gets, though we may not have many members, thousands could be finding the information accumulated here and utilizing it in some way or another, or just learning more about what trees can actually do. That is a pretty big ...

Re: Tree Haiku

Bob, My pleasure. It's definitely been a rewarding exercise for me. In my next poem that will be published in The Heron's Nest, the Blue Ash makes an appearance. It was inspired when I was down in the Bluegrass measuring some trees and there were two particular blue ashes that caught my eye with som...

Re: Tree Haiku

NTS, In the spirit of the overall NTS mission that includes poetry and many other disciplines, I just wanted to share a recent published tree-related haiku. I've had other haiku published in the past, but this is the first one that is tree-related. It's not a stretch to say that I learned trees from...
