I knew it as a forest hiked that trail then it was clear cut I saw that, stood in the middle of it the seed tree they left was broken in half nothing but a snag it had a northern flicker living in it took a photo of the male, feeding its young they planted a mono-culture of genetically similar christmas trees so now it’s trees again. but it isn’t a forest. it’s just trees. maybe … some day …. it will be a forest again.
