Blister Swamp, West Virginia, Abies, balsamea

Tucked away in a remote corner of the “endless mountains” of northern Pocahontas County is found a little-known area of some forty acres known as Blister Swamp. This name was very aptly given for here was found an excellent native stand of Abies balsamea (L.) Mill., better known to the natives of the region as Blister Pine.
