Surveying The Land

"Oaks the circumference of 9-15 feet abound in the forests ... White Oak and Burr Oak at intervals of 30-40 feet with undergrowth 5-6' high which has the appearance of being annually burnt down as I am informed it is" — John M. Gordon, October 1836, describing the country between Dixboro and Ann Arbor. (This is a slide from a presentation I saw at the library this week)
