Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5, Nikon...
Ring counts of increment cores from the two large hemlocks in this scene confirm that both are more than 300 years old. These are certainly the oldest trees in the town forest, and likely the oldest in Salisbury. A few large chestnut oaks and white oaks in the stand may be nearly as old. It is unusual to find living trees that were part of the forest canopy before Europeans colonized the area (few settlers were in this part of Vermont until the French and Indian War ended in 1763). Hemlocks can live 1000 years, so these impressive trees are a pale reminder of the majestic original forest.
