The Forest History Society will hold a Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches online presentation on January 18th from 1 to 2:15 pm EST.
Tim Palmer, the award-winning outdoor photographer and writer, will share photos from his book of that name and discuss the history and future of these two species that once blanketed the eastern United States.
In his presentation, Tim describes the importance of these tree species, explains how exotic insects and pathogens are decimating these trees, and discusses the promising work that scientists and managers are undertaking to correct the problems and restore these extraordinary woodlands.
Tim’s book, Twilight of the Hemlocks and Beeches, won the Ansel Adams Photography Award from the Sierra Club
