The Native Tree Society

The Native Tree Society (NTS) is a cyberspace interest group devoted to the documentation and celebration of trees and forests of the North America and around the world, through art, poetry, music, mythology, science, medicine, wood crafts, and collecting research data for a variety of purposes.  The NTS provides a discussion forum for people who view trees and forests not just as a crop to be harvested, but also as something of value in their own right. Even today we are finding the largest and oldest trees ever recorded for some native species. We are finding hidden pockets of old growth forest and examples of unusual forest ecosystems. If you want to become part of this adventure, simply create a free account on our NTS BBS discussion board at and jump into the discussions.  Membership is open to anyone with an interest in trees living anywhere in the world.  We also have a NTS Facebook page.
