Kentucky Color: Forested Mudslide Island

2010-06-17 - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge. Micro Forest: "The recent devastating flooding via a mudslide moved this 15 square foot forest to what used to be the ditchline of KY 704 which winds through beautiful Hopewell Acres in Amandaville, Cumberland Co., KY," writes Billy Joe Fudge. "A single Sugar Maple dominates the canopy of this small forest with Poison Ivy, Red Cedar and numerous other species. There is probably at least 20 different species on this single little island. It is amazing what we can see if only we can focus on one spot for an extended period. Yes, we do need to take time to stop, focus, and actually see what makes up the world that God has so graciously given us." -Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester, Kentucky Division of Forestry.
