Karen, I remember when you posted the photos of those neat trees over on DG! We have magnificent trees here in PA. There are quite a few State Champion trees right within a 20 mile radius of here.

I read something the other day that said that 9% of all US woodlands are located within PA. That was written in 2009 and I wondered if it is still true. We do have magnificent woods here, even within our really urban areas.

Well think about the huge areas of West that are chapparrel, or desert, or plains grassland. I find it interesting that some of the east coast has MORE woods now than at times in our US history, because of agriculture in the past. Many of the woodsland you see are not original forest (old growth)

It's true although we do have very large swaths of old growth forest here. Well Pennsylvania translated to English means Penn's Woods. We still have tons of farmland from just 20 minutes west of here all the way to the other side of the state.

I took my girls on a tour of the Mountain Lake Biological Station this summer, and we listened to a very informative talk on old growth forests and the growth rate of trees 100 years ago as compared to now. It was great, and the girls were engaged and interested! We still have old growth forest in the area where I am from.
Instead of running after perfection, why not simply walk in faith?

Virginia and MD are very lush and green in lots of large areas. The Mid Atlantic truly is one beautiful part of the US. Thumbs up

Up in the part of the state where Doc lives is called the Pa Wilds and it truly is all across the upper portion of the state. It's all old growth forest with big herds of Elk and lots of Bears and BobCats and even Mountain Lions. The understory is miles and miles of Rhododendrons, Mountain Laurels and ferns.

My fathers hunting camp is above Doc in the Pa Wilds. We hiked some trails thru old growth trees they are amazing to see. Unfortunately that area is were they are now doing the marcellus shale drilling.

Having a lot of natural resources is both a blessing and a scourge. Glare
