Wouldn’t it be nice for your great, great, great grandchildren to visit thesemagnificent living treasures? “If youwish to nominate trees for consideration in future Penn’s Woods editions, or if you wish to help preserve these venerable giants, Green Valleys Association, the publishers, would be pleased to hear from you. Any information on very old trees in our four-state area will aid our efforts. Reports of stormdamage, encroaching construction, historical documents, local folklore, or human interest stories about the trees in this book, as well as nominations, are earnestly solicited.

•Valuable Research•

“Readers are encouraged to collect and send ring counts and circumference measurements of felled trees (not necessarily Penn trees), along with soil characteristics of their growing sites (fertility and moisture) to Green Valleys Association, Birchrunville, PA 19421. Tis data bank will become valuable in future research to determine the age of living trees.”

“Teyare the bestwe have leſt of thewilderness, and thewitnesses of our finestmoments;” states the Foreword toANaturalHistory of Trees by Donald Peatie (Bonanza Books, NY, 1948). “Trees still standing could tell us how Boone and Lincoln, Lewis and Clark,Washington and Penn took shelter beneath themor laid a hand on the bolewhile speaking…Especially, it is the native trees that are our heritage….Wherever you live,wherever you trampor

travel, the trees of our country are wondrously companionable, if you have a speaking acquaintance with them. When you have learned their names, they say themback to you, as you encounter them—and very much more, for they speak of your own past experience among them….”

Perhaps it is time to pay a visit to an old native tree.

Like all “organic beings” you both benefit from giving and receiving kind atention.
