Gaudineer Knob in Randolph County:

It's #ArborDay everybody! Time to tell a #tree all the reasons why it's awesome (in fact, feel free to tell them anything, they won't judge). Pic: Red Spruce forest at Gaudineer Knob, WV Gaudineer Knob, elevation 4,450 feet, is the site of one of the few remaining virgin tracts of forest (not pictured) in West Virginia. West Virginia's red spruce forests are home to many important and threatened species including the northern flying squirrel, the snowshoe hare, and the cheat mountain salamander. Much of the original expanse of red spruce was destroyed by aggressive timbering, conversion to grazing land, or haphazard fires. However, there is a renewed effort to replenish this important habitat through organized spruce sapling plantings. #wv #gotowv #gaudineerknob #cheatmountain
