Old Oak TreeThis forest was once a pasture.This White Oak (Quercus alba) is over 100 years old and provides evidence that it occupied the edge of a formerly cleared pasture area.The other clue is the occasional piece of barbed wire found lodged in the tree trunks in this area. By lining up this tree with other large trees adjacent to the trail, you can envision the line of the old field edge.Edges of the fields were often the safest haven for growing trees. When large fence-row trees were located on the property line, they were often spared when woodlands were cleared for commercial timber sales. A careful study of the age of the typical trees in the nearby area indicates that this area was last maintained as a cleared pasture or field about 60 to 100 years ago.
