The hemlock woods at the Harvard Forest are filled with scientific apparatus to monitor threats similar to the one that killed chestnut trees. The forest, the soils, and the streams are all gauged and monitored, and each tree stem is marked and identified to signify that the stem's vital details have been recorded and stored in a digital database. This concluding chapter presents the authors' final thoughts and lessons learned in their explorations of the hemlock.
