Report Details

This is the section of Mile 16 that I call Spruce Island Viewpoint South. In a small ravine along the trail there were many downed 4-8 inch diameter snag (killed/diseased by what?)trees. They were probably blown down by the series of storms we've experienced of late. The ravine had no undergrowth and I believe may have been replanted after a logging situation with the same species of trees that were all the same age. This is a very small testimony about how natural species and age diversity protects our forests.
