Tree his­tory of the Pi­curis Moun­tains — Trees do talk, but peo­ple have to learn to lis­ten. The Car­son Na­tional For­est’s arche­ol­o­gist Pa­trica Cor­ral will teach peo­ple to do that Thurs­day (Oct. 11) at the event called “If Trees Could Talk: Peeled Trees in the Pi­curis Moun­tains.”

“Thirty years ago ar­chae­ol­o­gists dis­cov­ered over 500 cul­tur­ally peeled pon­derosa pine trees in the Warm Springs area of the Camino Real District. These liv­ing ar­ti­facts have pro­vided im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about an­cient land use pat­terns and tra­di­tional plant uses,” read a press re­lease from the For­est Ser­vice. The talk runs from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Car­son su­per­vi­sor’s of­fice at 208 Cruz Alta Road in Taos.
