Ecological Feature in West Glenwood Preserve
- Owned By
This redwood forest, like most, is a second-growth forest which means that the large oldgrowth trees were cut, allowing younger trees access to sunlight. Redwood trees can reproduce asexually, which means that in addition to producing cones and seeds, they produce shoots from their roots that become new trees. Often, where an old growth redwood was cut down, there is now a ring of trees around where the stump of that tree used to be. Can you find one of these "fairy rings"?
