From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Forrest H. Duttlinger Natural Area is a protected area in Clinton County, Pennsylvania that includes a 158-acre (64 ha) old-growth forest of Eastern Hemlock, American Beech, Black Cherry, Sugar Maple, and Northern Red Oak. There are also Eastern White Pines, but a few were selectively logged around 1900. The largest tree is an Eastern Hemlock, 43 inches (110 cm) diameter at breast height and 112 feet (34 m) tall.

The old-growth forest once lay on the boundary of two lumber companies, the Goodyear and Lackawanna, but was apparently spared because of a dispute over a surveying error.
