Barth's Distinction:
There are two types of people in the world: Those who divide people into two types, and those who don't.

Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.


Poplar, both kinds, have no shade tolerance. So when the grand old poplars drop, they leave a hole in the forest. The shade may be too dense for poplar, but it's just what the young spruce seedling needs.

Spruce needs protection to get started. As a young tree, its roots don't go deep enough to pick up enough water to keep it alive in full sun. As the poplar trees mature and die out, more and more spruces come in.

I have a couple patches in transition. In one such patch, I have a wild clematis. They have increased over the years. Last summer we had eleven of them.
