I asked my brother, who belongs to a tree lot organization and he suggested
the following -

"Normally I would go to the NYS DEC to get this kind of information.  They
published a nice report that gave some of this data about 2 years ago.  A
would be to try the College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse
University.  They have quite a historical section there.  Person to contact
be Professor Hugh Canham. <[log in to unmask], phone 315-457-4972>.
Alternatively, Mr. Pachan could try the forestry people at Cornell.  A good
name to
contact there is Dr. Peter Smallidge, State Extension Forester
