Pocahontas has so many trees, we tend to take them for granted. A tree is a tree is a tree. You've seen one, you've seen them all. Well, maybe not. Our newest hiking trail feature's an imposing tuliptree, the Big Poplar. We've recently found an oak that's even larger in trunk girth. The tree pictured here is certainly unique, the stuff of monster stories, perhaps, or of forest gnomes.
Thoughts on the park, its residents and how to preserve its natural beauty.
