    Looks like the north woods of Wisconsin, although the various neighboring states presumably have similarly forested regions. A bit flatter than the parts I’ve visited, the northern portion of the state tends to have lots of hills and valleys and such due to glacial bulldozing. VERY picturesque, particularly around some of the lakes.

    Western Montana, Idaho, the Cascades in Washington and Oregon, probably northern CA.

    If you are looking for specifics, I’ll send an email.

    The pine barrens of southern N.J.

    My back yard. The small green ground cover is kinnickkinnick. Grows in lots of areas where pines are the predominate tree. Northern inter mountain west and Pacific Northwest.

    The brown flecks on the ground look like dead pine needles. Pine trees are abundant in Michigan, especially the further North you go. The lower branches often die and break off as the trees grow taller and the sunlight is blocked by the newer, higher up branches.

    When I lived in Michigan the pine trees in the forests I visited had no branches low enough for me reach unless they were on the edge of a growth of pines. Those were younger trees and even then, only the branches facing away from the older trees were alive and growing. The branches facing the older, taller trees, were often barren due to the sun being blocked by the older trees.

    Wherever you go to find it you also want to look at managed forest ares that have been replanted about 20 to 30 years ago. That is a a picture of a mono culture tree field.

    The mossy stuff isn’t in Michigan, sorry folks.

    As much as I’d like Oleg to visit the mitten state. Mossy stuff is Pac NW – Washington, Oregon and the like.

    Or Scandanavia

    There is some of that mossy stuff here in the U.P. and the scene is quite a bit like certain area’s, The Porkies, Estivate Pines, Mccormick Wilderness and Sylvania Wilderness to name a few.

  9. jon spencer says:

    That is Estivant Pines, not estivate. Auto correct strikes again.

    Looks like the West Virginia Higlands

    Near Cagle Cemetery in Pikeville, Tennessee.

    Do a google image search for “pine forest south Georgia” you will find a doppleganger of your pic.

    Olympic Pennisula

  14. Jtwig says:

    I bet most (near) virgin forests in north American look like that. I’ve seen similar in Michigan, specifically the minister national forest.

  15. Chris. says:

    Northern Minnesota has pine forests like that. Better hurry though, the ground will be turning white soon.
