Over how many lifetimes will nature be able to restore itself? Dwarf Cypress Forest, Tate’s Hell.

P1120333

The state acquired Tates’ Hell in 1994.  Before that the land was a timber plantation.

From the Ralph G. Kendrick Boardwalk which sits on a part of an old plantation road, one can see the rest of the road as it transects the Dwarf Cypress forest.

The cypresses have not grown over it — the road remains a constant reminder of itself.

How many lifetimes will it take for nature to restore itself?

We should be careful about what do we to the land, it takes a long longer to undo what we have done.
