|It is not uncommon in the Dysart preserve to see old growth trees|
like this white oak. It is easily 8 feet dbh and 80-100 feet tall. County
forester Nathan Taylor is impressed - tree hugger : )
|Dysart Woods is home to native black gum as well which is|
identifiable by its thich, furrowed bark and deep red fall foliage.
|The thick forest canopy traps moisture and creates ideal growing |
conditions for a variety of mushrooms. These are growing at the
base of a dogwood tree.
