The Ancient Forest In North Dakota That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

If trees could talk, these would have quite a story to tell. For a state that was known as mostly treeless and still is today, people may not expect there to be large amounts of pine trees out on the plains that have been there for centuries. In fact, those pine forests were at one point named a national forest by Theodore Roosevelt himself. Though sparse, you won’t believe how beautiful these trees can be out in North Dakota.
