Western oak fern

(Gymnocarpium dryopteris)

This fern does not form bushes. In forest clearings overgrown with the western oak fern it is likely that what you are setting eyes upon is all one plant. A long stem, or rhizome, grows underground from which multiple sprouts appear above surface in summer. Thanks to this physiology it can survive forest fires and deforestation, after which it spreads fast and seizes new territory.
