"I've got a great addition to your site, I have an old
painting of Niagara Falls before they cut down all the trees. I
always wondered how beautiful it was, now I know. Here it is in
.jpg, let me know if that is not the proper format. I own this
work and it dates from roughly 1800. I've been researching it
for months and it may have been by John J. Audubon, I found the
letters Aud on the lower left hand side. Andrew Zebrun III"

A first attempt at a video slide-show.. ENTS- Having been inspired by
Jenny's videos of trees, birds, and Central Park, I've made one
myself---not about trees specifically, but with many trees
included( I asked Jenny to "preview" this, and she gave the sign
of approval!). So here it is, based on a trip last October, to a
cabin in Ontario I own with a dear friend. I hope you like

Just a photo ENTS- A white pine on an
island point in Ontario exposed to the northwest winds, branches
bending and receding to the wind's influence. Steve

Forest fire float-plane video ENTS- Here is a very short
video of two Twin Otter float-planes suppressing a small forest
fire on the lake where we have cabins in Ontario---they would
circle the lake, scoop up water, and release on the burn. The
fire was put out without much damage.

(AFER) is a non-profit organization dedicated to scientific research and education related to ancient and old growth forests. Our website contains maps, information about ancient forest and our research results.
Ancient Forest Exploration & Research (AFER) was created in 1992 by
Dr. Peter Quinby and a small board of directors, to address the loss of
Ontario's forest heritage by conducting scientific research, and
education of the public.
- Ontario's Oldest Trees Ontario's trees are often
older than you'd think. Ancient cedars growing on the
Niagara Escarpment germinated over 1300 years ago, and
hemlock and yellow birch trees in Algonquin Park are more
than 400 years old. The table below will surely surprise
you, but even the trees listed here are probably not the
oldest ones on Ontario's landscape. You can learn more about
Ontario's remarkable trees, and our up-coming book, by going

forests page. http://www.ancientforest.org/oldtrees.htm
