"It's a botanical Pompeii, buried in a geological instant," said William A. DiMichele, a paleobiologist and curator of fossil plants at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington and one of the forest's discoverers. He believes it was gently entombed by floods that successively washed through a swamp.

DiMichele and colleagues have explored a 5-mile path, or transect, starting at the ancient riverbank and arrowing through the swamp. Just as if this were a living forest, they have stopped along the route to identify individual leaves or study fallen trunks. Moving away from the river, a dense thicket of seed ferns gives way to tree ferns and low ground cover. Farther out, tree ferns are dwarfed by forest giants called scale trees.
"It was a Dr. Seuss world," Johnson said of the scale-tree forests: sun-washed quagmires studded with giant green stalks like asparagus spears, hundreds of feet tall. (Scale trees did not unfurl spreading crowns until the very end of their life cycle.) DiMichele has followed a fallen scale tree for 100 feet, before it disappeared behind coal not yet mined away.

"Bill DiMichele realizes he has an entire industry digging for him, creating a tunnel into an ancient world."
