Pic is Cocobolo Nature Reserve in Panama. Not my picture, but I have been.

here's a driveby of the Nisqually refuge. Maybe the most beautiful place I've been.
Unnamed Forest in my damn back yard, WA
I take no offense when people accuse me of camping in my own back yard.
Mt Rainier and Squaxin Island (tribal) taken from my kayak in the Puget Sound.
Albany Pine Bush, New York
It's a small area where the soil is mostly composed of sand and a thin layer of humus, the sand was left behind after a glacial lake drained into the Atlantic ocean via the Hudson river
So because of that, fires happened often in the area so all the trees are spaced far apart and the understory is made of grasses, forbs and shrubs
Word yo, I used to live in the ghettos of Central Ave
Wallace Falls State Park is just outside of Gold Bar, off highway 2 and the Skykomish River. Issaquah is down south on I-90. Free geography lesson!
Also that doesn't look like Wallace Falls. Maybe it's a weird angle on the upper falls?
Looking through my photos I realize the camera doesn't usually emerge from its bag until I emerge from the treeline.
We did the whole trail from parking to lower to upper to Wallace Lake, then the bike trail back. Here's my version of the photo you posted.
... and that's too bad because the pnw has some really impressive trackless, dark, primordial forests.
It's a good place. Easy to access, open all year. Those losers at off-season Tiger Mountain can suck it.
Here's the typical low elevation second growth forest of the park in keeping with the topic.
I love ancient, mossy, fern covered green forests in Cumbria and western parts of the UK. Cumbria is the best county
The forests in Washington state are also beautiful.
Deciduous oak woodlands are the best but abandoned plantations are still pretty nice.
The smaller ones nearby had it, but none of the bigger ones. Do you know if they resist infection if they reach a certain size?
Where I live the size of the tree doesn't seem to be a factor. I think it has to do with infection spreading through the stands and ideal conditions (moisture). Over-mature trees are always more susceptible to diseases but there's a real problem with canker in beech trees. It's sad cause they're real neat and they retain their leaves and make winter better.

>bitches dun kno bout my lichen and moss
They really are a great old-growth species. Where i'm from on the east coast of Canada you'd be hard pressed to find any beech young or old that's not riddled with canker to the point of being unrecognizable.
