Scientists believe they have found a woods so large that it was extended over Pennsylvania, from a quarry in Cairo, New York, nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains.
The findings could increase our understanding of the evolution of trees and how they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Experts from a variety of Uk and Us universities, and have been for more than 10 years of mapping of more than 3,000 square meters of woods, and came to the conclusion that it is the home of at least two different types of trees, Cladoxylopsids, and Archaeopteris.
