A Hidden Forest Has Quietly Been Growing In North America For Decades

Could an entire forest grow for hundreds of years right by a major urban center without anyone noticing? Turns out, one cluster of trees on the Niagara Escarpment has been doing just that.

Here’s what you need to know about this fascinating ancient forest that has defied the odds.

This discovery was monumental because these ancient trees were contentedly growing near major cities, highways, and hiking trails. Though many of them can’t be seen without climbing across cliff faces, it’s safe to say that the Niagara Escarpment is a true ecological jewel.
