Ok, so in Gibson woods nature preserve, in a certain section near the visitors center, are what look like tree ferns!
They stand about four feet tall on these woody stems!
They really do look like young trees!
I have two photos of them, but I hope to get more this spring before I move away!
I never noticed that fern trees are rare!
I've read that they only live in New Zealand!
But small ones seem to grow in a small section of Gibson woods!
I've never seen them anywhere else, just there!
I'm going to try to get really good photos of them and their surroundings this spring!
