Lessons in Forest Forensics

    “Tom Wessels... is the author of Reading the Forested Landscape, a guide to discerning the history of virtually any piece of wooded land, and on Saturday afternoon (in 2013), he led a group of interested folks through the forested landscape of the Hennig Preserve up in the Town of Providence at the western edge of Saratoga County...
      Near the end of our walk on Saturday, we came across several piles of rocks in the woods that by Wessel's own admission didn't conform to any of the theories he had posited.  But that's okay.  I like to think that some mysteries remain that have yet to be explained.”
