All you want to know about trees!

michael speakingHey Everyone,
I had the great pleasure of participating in a Kestrel Land Trust Walk and Talk, led by my good friend, Michael Wojtech., author of Bark, A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast. He is the Tree Guy!  Whenever we go out hiking, I’m always looking up at the birds and he’s always looking at the trees!  Between the two of us, we got it covered, except I keep walking into trees, and boulders, and…
Here’s a video of some of his Tree Walk, enjoy!


Here’s a few trees we saw (click on them to enlarge the pic):

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
