Ancient forests

Since I've got some posts coming up in this area that I think you'll all like but content is currently a little stilted due to my travel schedule I thought I'd put this index online now as a bit of a placeholder. In the near future I'm gonna drop some posts on (among other things) fossil trees and their descendants, ornamental sequoia and redwood cultivars, coastal redwoods in habitat monkey-puzzles out of habitat and some tropical trees of ancient stock. Whilst you're perusing the classic E, W & W below - I'll be outside in the sub-tropical sun(!) looking for apex predators to photograph for you.........
