Get out your arborist/silviculturist hat and take a look at this picture of Copper Beech just sent over by Mike Finkbeiner. Does that look like 28 acres of forest to you? Our town’s thought so, for nearly 4o years.
UPDATE: Readers want a more current photo than the one on the bottom. Here’s Google Earth – still looks like an overgrown golf course to me. Either way, you won’t find Robin Hood skulking in wait for the Sheriff of Nottingham.
