It Ain’t Easy Being Green: Pests, Problems, and Personalities of Trees

March 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

It Ain’t Easy Being Green: Pests, Problems, and Personalities of Trees

Want to know more about the trees that make up our beautiful New England forests? Join the Squam Lakes Association on Sunday, March 1st, to explore West Rattlesnake while learning about the wild world of trees—who their enemies are, how they make friends, why beech bark is smooth while an oak’s is ridged, how they handle the stresses of winter in New Hampshire, and more!

We’ll be touring the grand Rattlesnake loop, starting on the Old Bridle Path, visiting both peaks, and heading down the Col trail to visit the beaver pond. From there, the hike will proceed at the whim of the participants. Depending on how everyone is feeling we’ll head back up Col and down Old Bridle, or continue to the road and hike back to the Old Bridle parking lot.  This hike is scheduled to start at 8am and should wrap up around 12pm.

Participants should bring hiking gear appropriate for winter weather: warm, dry layers, micro-spikes/snowshoes, water-resistant hiking shoes, lunch, and plenty of water. Registration is required. To register visit our website at www.squamlakes.org or call us at (603) 968-7336.
