Black Spruce

Even though black spruce forests look sickly, they're actually healthy trees. Their shallow roots spread over permafrost, so they grow slowly. Soil above the permafrost melts and freezes, buckling the ground and making the trees tip. This stand might've sprouted around the same time as World War I, or even earlier. Maybe back when there were only ten miles of paved roads in the entire country.
