Mariton: Tree Sculptures

December 17, 2011


The October Snow Storm left its mark on Mariton.  There are many downed trees, broken tops, and sheered limbs.  This is another sculpture provided by the snow’s weight.  This is located in the successional area along the Main Trail (just before it joins the Turnpike Trail).  You can see the saplings in the foreground on the left are leaning to the right.  The trees in the back ground on the right are leaning left.  It is interesting that large blocks of trees were weighted by the snow in one direction, while others close by lean a different direction.
