Hemlock - Red Oak
Mixed Hardwood forest


This list was compiled in September, 2011.  The forest is on a steep northern hillside, bordered by a stream at its base.  It is a natural Hemlock - Red Oak Mixed Hardwood Forest, approximately 3-4 acres in size.  It lies south-east of the house, south of the Pollinator Field and a portion of the Grassland, and it extends to the eastern edge of the property.  It transitions into the Succession Forest to its west.

The current list is partial.  We will continue to add to the list as new varieties are observed and identified.  The list is currently maintained as an excel spreadsheet, but we hope to extend it to a database format.
