Life Strangling Death

Follow Janes Island on Twitter:
If you pay close attention as you walk a path through the forest, you'll see more than trees and an occasional animal bolting across your path.  You'll see drama.

The scene pictured on the right is now playing at Janes Island State Park in Crisfield, MD.  It's one of the park's longer running shows.  I'm no tree expert, but I think it's safe to say the black cherry (Prunus serotina) engulfing an old stump is ten, maybe twenty-years-old.  Both trunks appear healthy so the show should continue for many more years to come.
