THE FOREST

The 550 acre forest surrounding Mt. Tom is one of the earliest
 surviving examples of planned and managed reforestation in the
United States.  "Winding amid plantations of Norway spruce,
white pine, red pine, and European larch set out as early as 1874,
carriage roads and trails lead into the depths of rich hardwood stands
of native sugar maples, beech, and birch trees and through agricultural
pastures punctuated by old stone walls.  Scattered along these routes are
400 year old hemlocks, spared the axe to witness the march of history."
