What Does A Mature Forest Look Like?

Everyone has their reasons for spending time in a forest.

Some people enjoy the solitude.  Some people enjoy the fresh air.  Some people enjoy the exercise.

I count myself as someone who enjoys all three.  But if I had to be completely honest with myself, I’d have to say that something else attracts me far more strongly than solitude, fresh air, and exercise.


I go to the forest to learn.  Often, I go there to ask questions.

Over the years, I’ve found that there’s no shortage of questions a person can ask when spending time in a forest.

What kind of forest is this?  Who are we likely to find in this forest?  Where does one forest stop and another begin?  Why does any of this matter?

I recently spent time in a small patch of mature forest and asked some of these questions.  If you’re interested in receiving a beginner-level education on mature forest characteristics, check out the video.
