Don't even think about trying to hide your home in the middle of trees. Watch out, when I find it your going to get a big fat building=yes!!!!

Can you do these for me?

I have family living over there, but I can't map there house because my GPS is to unstable under the trees and I can't see the house because of the trees.

One thing that has been a great help to me is the fact that for my area (Fargo, ND) the most zoomed in Bing imagery is actually a different satellite pass then the imagery if you zoom out just far enough to load the next set of tiles. The "less" zoomed in one is only about 6 months old so it is good for locating things that are new and, more relevant to this discussion, it was taken at a time when there were few leaves on the trees. I have found many houses tucked away like this by switching back and forth between the two image sets. Probably not something that is available everywhere but worth checking for when you start a new area.
