Black Aspens

Black Aspens



An early autumn snowfall covers aspens and contrasts the unique black branches of the stand. Quaking aspens are this continent’s most widely distributed tree and one of its most colorful. Aspens are the world’s most massive individual organism and also the oldest. Aspens reproduce through suckering - the process whereby an individual aspen stem sprouts new stems all belonging to a single root system. This gives aspens the ability to reach enormous area and age.

Winter snowfall has flocked a grove of pines, creating a beautiful cast of hues and detailing the unique shape of these abundant trees. Lodgepole pines and spruces like these belong to the coniferous species of forest trees. Coniferous trees have needles instead of leaves and cones instead of flowers to thrive at colder temperatures and higher elevations.
