Re: historic photo of virgin white pines

Wow. That has to be the fattest 35-year-old tree I have ever seen. No wonder green diamond has such short rotation periods.

Re: Soundcard: Scots pine, Sicily

Michael, I am always impressed and inspired every time I listen to one of your soundscapes. I have recently been walking through a lot of Scots pine forest in Scotland and Sweden; there is always a calming nakedness that overcomes me when strolling through these open woods. Thank you for posting.

Emerald Ash Borer

Some pictures of some confirmed EAB infested ash trees in the Greenbrier area of the park. Some trees were completely blasted, others seemed to be hanging in there though declining vigor was visible.
