A group of men cut posts out of a 16-year-old Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) plantation on James Keogh's farm near Warsaw, N.Y. The wood of the Black Locust is exceptionally hard and resistant to rot making it a popular wood for fence posts. This image was created to record the reforestation efforts of the New York State Conservation Department.
