A "Weeping" Elm Here is a photo
of a very wonderfully shaped American elm at the Bement-Billings Farmstead
in Newark Valley, NY. We have had dozens of elm trees grow and die along the
creek, but this one has maintained its resistance to Dutch elm disease. We
had New York State's largest elm for about two years. Shortly after it was
placed on the big tree... ... 8f57?hl=en

Syracuse Baldcypress ENTS, I
believe that the baldcypress grove referred to by Joe Zorzin is in Oakwood
Cemetery in Syracuse. I remember seeing it years ago. Tom Howard Mar 9,

North Syracuse Cemetery Oak Grove
ENTS, Yesterday Robert Henry and I visited the North Syracuse Cemetery Oak
Grove. It was a beautiful sunny day with still lots of snow on the ground.
The old oaks were an awesome sight with their gnarled crowns reaching high
into the crystal clear blue sky. Despite many visits to this grove, we are
both as awestruck by it as if we were visiting it the first time. This grove
has more old trees close together than any other old growth forest we've
ever seen in the East, even more than in Zoar Valley. The oaks of the
Cemetery Grove are older than the oaks of the nearby Wizard of Oz Oak Grove,
have more stag-headed crowns, more gnarl factor, more crown reiterations
than the Wizard of Oz Oak Grove oaks.... ... 5ffe?hl=en

North Syracuse Woods 2 ENTS, Here
is more about the North Syracuse Woods of my childhood. The dominant trees
were Red Maple and Black Gum (outside of North Syracuse a rare tree in
central NY but in the brushy second growth areas of the woods it was
everywhere) with Quaking Aspen dominating in groves that we called "Poplar
Groves" - these groves were the most important features of the landscape.
The terrain was flat except for hills that were made when a long drainage
ditch was dug in the far part of the woods; we called this ditch the "Krik"
and it represented the wild back of beyond to me as a child; it was a
jungle-like area with trees a little larger than in most of the rest of the
woods.Beyond the Krik was a "wilderness" that extended to a farmer's field -
it was in this area where the giant Black Willow was. This whole landscape
has vanished to be replaced by an industrial park and houses.... ... 99d5?hl=en

North Syracuse Woods ENTS, Like
James Parton I had a magical woods to explore in childhood; the woods was
right behind the house where I grew up on the east side of North Syracuse.
It covered almost 90 acres and was basically an abandoned farm and apple
orchard with open fields, groves of Quaking Aspen and Red Maple, and a few
isolated groves of Sassafras. It was here that I learned how to identify
trees, but even more, it was a fabulous place to explore, to have magical
childhood adventures in, to pretend I was living through many early periods
of history, to search for hidden treasure, to imagine that trees could talk
to me. This was all many years ago and what's left of the woods has been
turned into housing developments and an industrial park, and the less than
30 acres left is mostly young second growth forest.... ... c065?hl=en

NYC Parks exhibit ENTS, Just
found out there is an exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York on the
parks and wilderness of NYC! There hasn't been an exhibit like this here
since the 1930s. I'm going to check it out today. Definitely a positive sign
that city dwellers are appreciating what scraps of nature we have here in
the city.... ... dc3e?hl=en

NY in the Fall links to a few
pics that I've uploaded (insanley huge backlog): all taken in Harriman State

heavily developed areas and a number of paved roads but also many

cold hike in the Catskills Took a
quick trip up to the southern Catskills on Saturday for a verrrrrrrry cold
hike. Here's a link to a video of images - has the very original title
"Cold" as that is my chief memory along with the beautiful forms made by the
ice and swirling water of a brook.

"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
