Billy Joe Fudge: Some hollies brought on; some are native

2013-12-03 - Powell Creek Headwaters, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester, KY State Division of Forestry. Billy Joe Fudge answers reader question: How did Holly trees get here? from reader Charles Marshburn: Some are "brought on" and some are native. American Holly is shade tolerant and can live for decades in the understory where they receive very little direct sunshine. I suspect this little fellow located on the head waters of Powell's Creek just about a mile from Coomer's Trading Post (Downtown Fairplay) is about the same age as the larger hardwood trees surrounding him. - Billy Joe Fudge
