Albany Pine Bush, New York

It's a small area where the soil is mostly composed of sand and a thin layer of humus, the sand was left behind after a glacial lake drained into the Atlantic ocean via the Hudson river

Wallace Falls State Park is just outside of Gold Bar, off highway 2 and the Skykomish River. Issaquah is down south on I-90. Free geography lesson!

Also that doesn't look like Wallace Falls. Maybe it's a weird angle on the upper falls?

... and that's too bad because the pnw has some really impressive trackless, dark, primordial forests.

It's a good place. Easy to access, open all year. Those losers at off-season Tiger Mountain can suck it.

Here's the typical low elevation second growth forest of the park in keeping with the topic.

I love ancient, mossy, fern covered green forests in Cumbria and western parts of the UK. Cumbria is the best county

The forests in Washington state are also beautiful.
Deciduous oak woodlands are the best but abandoned plantations are still pretty nice.
jesus fuck that place is a trip

I remember dropping rocks and big logs off of it and counting like 15 seconds until they hit the ground

Oh, hey. It's you. It's that guy, everybody. Welcome to the thread I guess.

no wonder you guys have a red list for fungi
I've been there. Its beautiful, not a bad walk, but not what I'd call God tier. But to each his own.
Go to Lake Quinault. Its about half an hour North from Aberdeen. You'll be stunned.
All dat Scotchbroom. Goddamn, clear it and plant clover or grass or something that'll attract wildlife and give you room to do shit.
OP. You've made me homesick. My mind is made up, I must find my way home. I'm currently stuck in West Kentucky and haven't been back to WA in about 5 years.

The smaller ones nearby had it, but none of the bigger ones. Do you know if they resist infection if they reach a certain size?

Where I live the size of the tree doesn't seem to be a factor. I think it has to do with infection spreading through the stands and ideal conditions (moisture). Over-mature trees are always more susceptible to diseases but there's a real problem with canker in beech trees. It's sad cause they're real neat and they retain their leaves and make winter better.
Haha, I work for Weyerhaeuser.
A lot of the pics in this thread aren't even good tier...

>bitches dun kno bout my lichen and moss
I haven't seen beech bark disease where I am, but when I was around the White Mountains I saw it for the first time... on every single tree.

American Beech is one of my favourite trees and the smooth blue bark is the best feature, sad to see it going this way.

They really are a great old-growth species. Where i'm from on the east coast of Canada you'd be hard pressed to find any beech young or old that's not riddled with canker to the point of being unrecognizable.
There are certain races and subspecies that purportedly have genetic resistance.
