Moore's larch trees beyond Sleepy Hollow cut this winter. They were
much decayed. The woodpeckers had stripped many of bark in pursuit of
grubs. When the woodpeckers visit your woods in great numbers, you may
suspect that it is time to cut them. The chopper does not complain of
cutting the larch, but when he comes to the splitting there's the rub.
The grain runs almost round a four-foot stick sometimes. They make good
posts. Are those poplars whose buds I have seen so much expanded for a
week or more a new species to me? The river poplar?
