Hey All,

I just made an account and looking forward to meeting more of you. Im located in Sullivan County NY along the Delaware River. I run an organization called Gathering Growth Foundation. Working to visually preserve the legacy of significant trees and forests in the US. You can see recently archived trees and forests here - www.gatheringgrowth.org

Talk Soon

Hi BK,
Welcome to the ENTS!
Great to hear your organization is helping preserve many trees and old-growth forests through the U.S!
Being from PA, I see you have a few forest listings for the state, and I am particularly fascinated with the Damascus Forest, which may have Old-Growth in the back.
Anyhow, great to have you join the ENTS!
BeeE.

Brian,

You'll quickly see that the information on the BBS is endlessly deep. You get information here that exists nowhere else. While I know you, most of the members don't. Ca you give the members a quick bio, and please tell everyone about your association with American Forests. Thanks and welcome aboard.

Hey Bob,

Great to finally be on here. A little about myself....

Im an ambassador to American Forests Big Tree Program ( Champion Trees). Ive been photographing Champions for almost four years now. I started Gathering Growth Foundation as a way to expand past just Champions... With Gathering Growth Foundation our goal is to be an educational platform and archive. To educate and share with the public these significant trees and unique/old growth forests in the US. Im based out of NY, so at the moment a lot of my attention is on the North East. Reach out with any recommendations or questions. :)

Thanks everyone

Brian,

You've found your new home. As you have time, I encourage you to explore the wealth of tree information and feel free to communicate with other members either through the email provision of the BBS or separately. The depth of NTS data is bottomless.
