Spring Comes to the Forest

Forester Walt Wintturi shared these photos of spring on the Randolph Community Forest.

Says Walt, “I was in a sugar maple stand between Stag Hollow Brook and “Hedge Hog Hill,” doing stand examination, to gather information for the next forest stewardship plan. The pictures illustrate the forest floor and a close-up of Spring Beauty flowers, which are covering the forest in white now. Their blossoms put a fine fragrance into the air. It’s a nice time to be in the forest.”
