Mr. Knight inspired me so much when I read an article back in 2012 about his fight to save one tree. If we all would fight for one thing with such vigor.... the world would be a better place. I did not know him but then again, he touched my life. RIP Frank Knight. I hope to meet you one day. Tree lover, Atlanta, Ga

I happened across this obit that is the story of Frank Knight and the mighty elm named Herbie. I was about 10 or 11 when the Dutch Elm disease hit Northern NY. One day the Highway Dept came and cut down 3 majestic elms that lined the Pleasant Valley Rd, a county road along which my dad's farm sat. I used to day dream out my bedroom window which looked upon those elms and a scenic view beyond. It was a very sad day. We still had 80 foot + maple trees lining the yard of our big old farmhouse on three sides, but I missed those elms. I always wondered if any elms in NY or the Northeast survived that horrible epidemic, and if so how many? Did more regenerate from seeds left behind? Sounds like Frank was a hero, a very loyal hero. Sorry the two had to leave us!

I love the picture that Peter Legge added. Tim & Carlene - Frank & Frances - - That's the way I remember the good times at Crystal Lake along with my Aunt & Uncle, Arthur & Mildred Austin. Both couples rented the Austin Cottage for several summers. I have such good memories of those great times.
