Thanks, Cal and steve111 ! yes, it seemed most of the river bank there was being slowly eroded - all of these trees seemed like they were on a conveyor belt into the drink.

Love this one Kamaly, have I seen similar ones before? Neat how they are all in a row.

kamalyn on September 29, 2008

Thanks, guy ! Well, they're hemlocks, so similar, but I'd never stopped at this spot before. The dam is a bit further down the road. But now they can be viewed double - the 3D came out pretty cool, so I uploaded a few different versions....if only more people could see 3D to appreciate them!

The sad thing is, since these are hemlocks, they probably will be killed off by the adelgid within the next few years, so this shady open spot right along the river will likely become an open meadow :(

A good one for the history books then if this stand is doomed. Our trees are dying because we just don't have rain. In Melbourne our dryest September on record. Our city street plantings are greatly affected by elm beetle, although I think some new bug has been introduced to eat the elm beeetles!! Great title too. H

thanks helen and jean! The hemlock adelgid ( a bug) is really sad, because there are so many stands of tall old hemlocks around here, and they form cool shady spaces like this - they're so dense that there isn't much in the way of understory plants. It's pretty unrealistic to control the bug in the wild, so all of these special places in the woods are dying off and turning into open areas.
