Ice Rings around Trees along the Allegheny River

e001

By: Pat Coate

A trek along the Allegheny River Trail earlier in the week yielded these unusual tree rings. Best guess is they formed as the partially frozen river receded after being swollen by recent rain and melting snow.

Jim A., aka Tree Master, if this guess is not right please let me know how these rings form – thanks!!

However they formed, they were beautiful to see.

    Hi Patty,

    I’m sure you’re right. The last photo shows it the best, perhaps, since the rings are all at the same elevation even though the base of the trees are at varying elevations. As usual, I really enjoy your photos and the others that appear on this blog.

    Jim
