Hemlock Forest in the Salisbury Town Forest -- Eastern hemlocks are responsible for more than 75% of both tree density and canopy cover in this stand, and hardwoods scattered among the hemlocks include three species of oak. The dark forest floor supports little more than mosses. Many of the trees here are about 200 years old, making it the oldest stand in the Salisbury Town Forest. A few trees are 300 years old, including two hemlocks in another gigapan (gigapan.org/gigapans/35738/) and possibly the white oak near the center of this scene. Logging has occurred here (cut stumps are present in the stand) but it has been less thorough than most places in Salisbury and Vermont.
This stand occupies a southeast-facing slope with thin till-derived soils over Cheshire quartzite.
