Warren County, OH - Searching for Old-Growth Characteristics

Post by Matt Markworth » Sun May 07, 2017 6:45 pm

NTS,

I'm going to be keeping an eye out for a possible candidate to the Old-Growth Forest Network in the county where I live: Warren County, Ohio. I've included some photos below from Hall's Creek Nature Preserve, and as I look in some additional places I'll post the photos to this thread. Hall's Creek doesn't have many old-growth characteristics developing yet, but a few areas have a nice start with some mature American beech and red oaks.

The network has a goal of designating one forest in each county that can grow a forest. With its extensive agricultural history, suburban/exurban development, and limited public land, finding a forest that is developing some old-growth characteristics may be the goal to aim for in this county.
