A Vigorously Growing Forest of Hardwoods

Printer-friendly version

One of the characteristic features of the hardwood forest that developed after the clear-cutting of the "old-field" white pines is the predominance of multi-stemmed sprout clumps. Fast-growing species that sprout prolifically -- red oak, red maple, white ash, birches, and black cherry -- are strongly represented. Red oaks are just beginning to overtop the other trees in this view.
