Default The Trees Behind My Shop

We made the move from NJ to Peterborough NH a little over 3 years now and I thought I'd show some reasons why we moved. I thought I'd start by showing some of the trees in the forest behind my shop. I hike back in there quite a bit and here are a couple pictures of one of the Red Spruce stands;



Some of them get quite large but, it's easy to see why ADI has so many knots;



As you get a little more altitude the stand becomes almost pure Red Spruce;



Here is a little better perspective;



As a guitar builder I find the experience of walking among the spruce very inspirational!

Thanks for viewing.
