Field Notes
I'm happy because we are outside in the fresh air and we have also found the Eastern Hemlock tree. Are only questions are, how old is it and what is the volume? I see a lot of vegetation, I hear cars going by and I smell moist leafs and fresh air.I am surprised because our Eastern Hemlock Tree that we found is spaced out from all the others

Your photos are a bit out of focus but other wise good job. HD

Leaf lovers I like your research but two of your pictures were really blurry the first one that was blurry is the two racing stripes on the back of the needle. the second one was the flexibility of the branch but it was bent a lot.
Another thing is that one of your vectors are dirt road and I didn't see a dirt road.

your page is good. Your Field Notes are good but you can add more
to your page.

I loved your website it was awesome!!
