ENTS midwinter rendezvous report
ENTS, Saturday was a
perfect day in the Berkshires and the spritely Ents of
Massachusetts took full advantage of it. We had our
mid-winter rendezvous, which included a bracing hike in
MTSF, followed by music and poetry, and finally, dinner at
the Charlemont Inn. The day before, we had received the good
news that the historic Inn would not be closing. On
Thursday, it was bought at an auction by a group of
investors committed to the continuance of the Inn. They
bought the Inn for $266,000. Charlotte and Linda, the former
owners, will continue to operate it. We are so thankful.
Charlotte and Linda are jewels, beloved by many, and
certainly by us, and an Inn without them is unthinkable....

Trees Program (June 2006)
For our Thursday June 24th meeting, we are indeed fortunate to have Mr.
Blozan, a founding member of the Eastern Native Tree Society and the
preeminent big tree hunter in our region, coming to Raleigh! We will be
looking at hard-to-measure trees; trees on slopes, leaning trees, crooked
trees. I'm hoping that some of you CTP Awards Jury members will be able to
attend, and bring along their measuring equipment.
