By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry
I figure that probably not more than a couple hundred Adair County residents would know that Adair County is part of the natural range of Big Toothed Aspen. In fact with the exception of only a small two or three county area in the North Carolina Smoky Mountains, Adair County is one of the most southern natural sites for this tree.
Aspen is the most widely distributed tree species in North America, stretching from inland Alaska south and east across Canada, much of the Idaho and Montana Rockies, and across the Great Lakes and Mid West Region to the Atlantic Ocean.
Its wood is mainly used for pulp and pallets in the Great Lakes Region including Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Billy Joe Fudge
