I'm a layman dendrophile who is happy and grateful to join you. I live near Asheville, N.C. and am an admirer of Will Blozan, though I've never met him. I live in his neck of the woods (regionally anyway) near Asheville, N.C. I have enjoyed living near forests in the eastern states in northeastern Ohio, southeastern Ohio, near Killington in Vermont, and in Boone, Charlotte, and Asheville, N.C. I have done a little writing about trees and forests (Mountain Xpress, WNC Woman) and a little volunteering (Western North Carolina Alliance in Madison County and Treasure Trees in Charlotte).

I've enjoyed classes in arboriculture, dendrology,introduction to environmental science, and field biology and ecology.

Thanks for making membership open to people like me.

Carol,

Welcome aboard, and thank you for joining. We hope that you will be an active member. We're all equal in the eyes of the trees. NTS is about the celebration of forests and trees from all perspectives. Again, welcome aboard.

Carol,
Welcome. I'm in Weaverville and also a layman but I get out and measure frequently. I'm glad to see another from the Asheville area. There is a solid contingency already but it's good to see it expand.
