The 120+ year old forest was commercially thinned in 2009, removing 1/3 of the tree growth to allow space for more desirable species. Dead snags and cavity trees were left to attract woodpeckers and owls to the property. Both Barred Owls and a Great Horned Owl have been heard living on the property.
|Rattlesnake Weed - Hieracium venosum|
The Rattlesnake Weed, or Hieracium venosum, gets a dandelion-like yellow flower, on a very tall stem. Pictures at the links.
