New Hampshire Nature Notes

Oh To Be the Top of a Tree.(VIDEO)
I have been surrounded by trees my whole life. I lived amongst the trees as a child and spent a half century as a wildlife biologist in New Hampshire. I often wonder about the trees about me. How old are they. What have they witnessed silently over the decades? And now this towering white oak is looking down at me. I wonder what does that tree know about me?
