David Robertson, associate professor and chair of the Department of Geography, was recently featured on Buffalo TV station WGRZ describing his research on the Genesee Oaks. A cultural-historical geographer, David's research shows that Geneseo's renowned old growth oak trees are remnants of a Seneca-maintained oak savanna that survived 19th century pioneer land clearance due to the progressive land management policies of the Wadsworth family. David says the project adds to our understanding of the geography and history of the Genesee Valley and advances awareness of Native American environmental agency and landscape heritage in eastern North America. He is now collaborating with natural scientists from the University at Buffalo on a National Science Foundation grant to fund expansion of the project using geospatial modeling and dendrochronology, scientifically studying the annual rings of trees to determine the dates and chronological order of past events.
