Pearson's Falls

Post by bbeduhn » Wed Dec 02, 2020 12:57 pm

Pearson's Falls is owned and managed by The Tryon Garden Club. They have treated their hemlocks and ash trees. Will Blozan reported on the site in 2007 http://www.nativetreesociety.org/fieldtrips/north_carolina/pearsons/pearson.htm

All measurements were made from the trail. There may well be some incredible forest away from the trail but the Garden Club is adamant about not leaving the trail, and with good reason. They claim to have 310 species over 275 acres.
