Re: Quick Outing
Those are some beautiful, healthy looking fish, and I hope they will stay that way, but with all of the dead and dying hemlocks I'm not so sure. [censored] those woolly adelgids!
As a kid growing up in Warren County in the 1950's, I remember going into the forest and seeing the stumps of some of the massive virgin hemlocks that had been cut down during the timber harvests of the 1800's, when the hemlock bark was stripped and used for tanning, and the rest of the tree was left to rot on the forest floor. Even as a kid, I felt quite sad to see the waste; your pictures of those dying hemlocks make me sad once again.
