Artist's Description

A dense understory of western sword fern ( Polysitchum munitum ), species of moss and lichen and sprays of vine maple ( Acer circinatum ) add an abundance of green to this section of old-growth forest. Bigleaf maple ( Acer macrophyllum ) and Douglas-fir ( Pseudotsuga menziesii ) trunks loom amid the sea of green leaves. Fallen trees, termed coarse woody debris among forest scientists, are a key characteristic of old growth. The toppled trees, with wood in various stages of rot, provides diverse habitat for a host of life forms ranging from birds to arthropods to fungus.
