Forest succession

Post by sasha » August 22nd, 2023, 1:10 pm

 
A "time lapse" showing natural reforestation over time of a piece of land I own that was clear-cut back in 2009. If I were ever to create a nature park, I'd clear cut a different acre of it every year, so walking through it would be like walking through time, past the results of 1 yr regrowth, 2 yrs, 3 yrs, etc.

But for now, this is all I can afford:  https://youtu.be/qW4QI4DQnqY

I used to give talks on a tree farm nature trail for kids groups. it went through 6 stages, seedling to almost old growth. loved the walk through time.
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach 10,000 stars how not to dance.

It's interesting how each stage seems to have its own players. Starting from bare dirt, the grasses seem to come first, & low weedy plants - then the brambles arrive, to get crowded out by even woodier stemmed stuff, & eventually trees. (Hereabouts, white pines & birches seem to the 1st to arrive, but maybe that's just because they were already established at the periphery of my lot.) It all goes to show that the forest as a whole is an organism unto itself...
