Human Causes: The dynamics of the forests changed with the introduction of the Europeans. The frequent grass fires were eliminated after a hundred years of cattle and sheep grazing. This meant that brush was able to accumulate and more seedlings and fire intolerant trees were able to mature. The Europeans also utilized the wood resources that surrounded them. Extensive logging in areas, removed all the best Ponderosa pines leaving the area virtually clear-cut. This opened area allowed more seedlings and saplings to mature because there were no
Unity has always been the goal of America. However, as their land expanded their unification fractured. From 1800 to 1850, America was separated between slave supporters and slave abolitionists. As America moved west, the conflict between the two sides increased because of the issues regarding southern farming, slaves states, and contradicting new laws.

After seeing a rocket launched off into space Sonny believed that building rockets could get him out of Coalwood and he would not have to be in the shadow of his brother or follow in his father's footsteps by working at the mines. While building rockets him and his friends Roy Lee and Sherman also start to believe that with rocket building they can get out of Coalwood and get a scholarship to a college. Soon after Sonny meets Quentin who is a so called genius and he starts to help Sonny with his
The Eastern White Pine is found in Georgia through the mountains and the upper Piedmont. These types of pine trees grow best in moist areas, such as near a river, or in areas that have a lot of hardwood trees as well. They can be recognized by their leaves, which look like needles and grow in bundles of five. The Eastern White Pine is known as one of the largest pines in Georgia. Historically these trees grew to be up to 175 feet tall but now in recent years only grow to about 100 feet in height. This type of pine is also a rapid grower. An Eastern White pine can reach forty feet in about twenty years, which is relatively fast for a tree.
Pine trees have two subgenus, one is the Strobus and the other one is the Pinus. (Earle, Christopher J. "Pinus (pine) Description - The Gymnosperm Database) There are about 114 species of Aspen out there. (Earle, Christopher J. "Pinus (pine) Description - The Gymnosperm Database) The main four types of Pine trees are scotch pine, ponderosa pine, bristlecone pine and black pine. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Pine trees are usually taller than 250 feet and have a lot of spiky leaves. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") These leaves have a long vine then small spiky thin pieces of leaves branch out of the vines. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Pine trees barks are a mixture of green and brown and are quite smooth besides the little bumps. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Pine trees also have small pine cones which grow on the tree. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") They are usually brown and face downwards with spikes facing downwards. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Pine trees are usually very popular in christmas, because they are easy to plant and not as hard to nurture as other plants. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") For example the Aspen trees which are very hard to keep alive. Most Pine trees can last from 100 years all the way up to 1000 years, if they are not chopped down for paper by that time that is. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Even though these trees last for quite a long time they still have diseases. Some examples are, the canker disease, needle cast, white pine blister rust, root rot and beetle infestation. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Most of these disease makes the trees crack in half. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") To prevent this sort of thing, you should not over fertilize the pine tree and don't constantly water the plant. (Lovetoknow Corp. "Pine Trees.") Aspen trees and Pine trees both grow small cones, which grow on the tree after it matures or while it
This tree resides in Oregon’s Willamette Mission State Park, where in 1834 the first white settler arrived to teach Native Americans. With the Black Cottonwood nearby, the missionary expanded until the 1861 great flood devastated their farm. Unfazed, this robust Black Cottonwood simply kept growing. Today, it’s nearly 300 years old. This tree now revels in the peace and quiet of its bordering 1,600 acres of woodland.
In 1941 the North Carolina General Assembly designated the flower of the dogwood tree as the official state flower. In actuality, three species of dogwoods exist in North Carolina. The alternate-leaf dogwood, which is common in the mountains and rare in the northern piedmont, has leaves that are simple and elliptical but are alternate on their stems (hence the name).

The Quercus Alba or commonly known as the white oak tree is a hardwood tree that is found in many areas around North America. The wood from this tree has been a very good building material and is used in projects from house building to small wood carpentry projects. Quercus
The MPB can inflict extensive damage to a pine forest when optimum factors of growth are met. The first of three main factors is, an overabundance of mature trees. The MPB will only bore into large diameter trees which are more prevalent since fire suppression has become a primary practice for forest management. Eliminating fires also provides a large quantity of host sites. Tree density is detrimental to forest health because interspecies competition for resources induces stress which makes more pines vulnerable to MPB attack. The final factor that has made the MPB such a

After going down to Wildwood for the first time I fell in love. It turned out to be wonderful and relaxing. As soon as you arrive at the Wildwood you can instantly smell the fresh salt water in the warm air. You can feel the ocean breeze flow through your hair and down your spine. You can see all the families enjoying a great day together.
So now when you see the trees, do not think the spots are just a wonder of nature. Remember to never ruin nature and just have patience.
The Chestnut blight is a fungus which is also called the chestnut bark disease. The scientific name for this is Cryphonectria Parasitica (Murril) Barr. The organism that assaults the American chestnut has the appearance of an extensive ulcer, and is regularly found on the tree trunk or other tree surface range. It enters tree wounds and splits and develops in and under the bark, executing the territory around the tree twig, extension or trunk. Yellow or orange spores (called pycnidia) radiate from the infection, and they are as little as a pinhead. The ulcer lodging the parasite could be either swollen or sunken; with the recent being the deadly sort that executes the tree. From the start, the tree kicks the bucket over the ulcer, despite the fact that it may keep on sprouting beneath it. As sprouts develop, they, too, get contaminated and pass on. In the long run, infections spread all around the tree surface, murdering the tree. In spite of the fact that youthful trees may succumb to the ailment inside a year, experienced trees may take years to succumb to the parasite.
The fungus develops in the root collar area of the tree. It travels underneath the bark by forming distinctive white mycelial fans and rhizomorphs. White mycelia fans are mats of irregular fan shaped mycelium. It grows between the wood and bark and girdles it, causing the separation between the two.
