Forest Pictures - Continued

A few more pictures from the farm visits.

CP forest road

Above is the CP forest road to SR 623. Below are some of the blackberry brambles. A few years ago they formed thickets all over the place. Now they are being shaded out on much of the land.

Below is the pool near the sycamore. We put in some rocks to stop the erosion. It used to be obscured by multiflora rose. I cut a bunch of them out, but most of the job was done by the shade of the growing trees.

Below shows ferns, which are becoming more common as the trees shade more of the forest floor.

Below is my American chestnut. I planted two seeds. One came up.
