A little twist on the old saying “you can’t see the forest for the trees”. In my version you can’t see the trees for the forest. My forest is a bit on the overcrowded side. But in my backyard, the forest is overcrowded. No maintenance is done on it so you really can’t see the trees for the forest and some of them are stunted as a result. I read once there used to be huge trees approximately one to an acre and forests were wide open and inviting. Might have been in the book “The Little Ice Age”, not sure, but the idea of an open forest with huge trees running through it stuck with me. We all need some space don’t we? I know I do. What kind of forests are near you, if any at all?
