In February this year , we told how Stirling fishermen spotted tree
stumps which appeared to have been gnawed by the rodents.
Other searchers have described to me the butterflies in their stomachs when they gaze on a newly spotted tree
that holds promise as a champion.
Out of these spotted trees
, first 24 trees were outlining the outer border of aspen stand within Forest Management Unit 27 (FMU#27).
But then, roughly five minutes later, Mark turned and spotted trees
shaking only 20 yards behind his stand.
