Description

During World War II this hillside was a cow pasture. After the war it was abandoned, and by 1960 a forest of young white pines had closed its canopy over the field. Some of the slower growing pines have since died, and the canopy opened to admit enough light for many sugar maple seedlings to germinate and establish in the understory. The crowded maples are now thinning, but the survivors will eventually become part of the overstory with the pines. Some of the maples could outlast the pines, but long before we learn the natural fate of this stand, the trunks will be worth too much at the mill, and succession will be diverted by the saw.
