Wow, I love this thread. I live in New England, and close to my house are some of the oldest trees in America. They are big oak, maple and black
walnut. Most of the old elms have disappeared but there are some left.
I have often wondered what these trees could possibly tell us. They have witnessed so much of American history (and this is biased, but the same holds
true for the rest of the world) that somehow, I believe that we will find a way some day to query their stored knowledge, as it is said that a tree
possibly records so much more than we understand, and today we just know by their ring structure, what kind of environment they were in in those
I think it is so important to save the large trees. I am saddened when I go down the street and find that someone has sacrificed a really old tree,
just because it interfered with their property and house. They could just trim it, but sadly, most just cut them down.
Please save the old trees.
