Cedar Swamp Photographs in the Pinelands yesterday. The mission was to finish reading a book called “The Heartbeat of Trees” by Peter Wohlleben and test some new equipment in the Wharton tract of the Pine lands NJ. This book marks a powerful return to the forest, where trees have heartbeats and roots are like brains that extend underground, where the color green calms us and the forest sharpens our senses. A must read.
The equipment didn’t get tested, but some else happened. I found to 400 year old Atlantic Cedar tree an camp site 6 on the border of Atsion Lake. I would like to measure them and add them to New Jersey big tree list.
These trees are magnificent and gave me a warm welcome. It was a wonderful find. Enjoy the images of the Atlantic Cedar trees.
The Cedar tree surly mean something to me. Not sure why I am still drawn to cedar swamps and in the pine lands we still have a lot of them. We have lost amazing Atlantic white cedars to previous generation who loved the cedar chest and line there closest with the wood because of it aroma and insect resistance. I selected these three images for your enjoyment. Please leave a comment. Enjoy and Thank You
