Slide Talk: Michael Gaige, Wolf Trees: History, Ecology, Conservation
Time: 4:00 pm-5:30 pm
In the New England woods stand thousands of old abandoned-pasture trees, legacies of our regional history and ecology. Commonly called wolf trees, the wide-spreading sentinels of the forest have a history and ecology all their own. In this talk Michel Gaige will journey from the wolf tree’s origins in Europe, to the American beginnings in Thoreau’s day, to the ecological role these trees play in contemporary forests. This talk will be followed by the Norfolk Land Trust Annual Meeting. All are welcome.
