Could not assess canopy b/c leaves were just beginning to emerge. Small caterpillars on one tree bark but could not ID. moth present. This survey was done by Brockton HS students visiting per Highstead F. field trip scholarship. 1st time to HF. Env. Sci. honors class. PVC marker from another study in plot. I intend to go back and see if any trees were missed or if some were from any adjacent plots by accident.

deb-06-25woodpecker-holesnoneThis is one of 4 congruous subplots in an old red pine plantation. Red Pines are declining and new species replacing them. Audrey helped choose this site b/c of its interesting contrast from the other Schoolyard demo plots. This plot is dominated by conifers and is decreasing in biomass currently. Canada mayflower, sarsparilla dominant ground cover. 1 lady slipper present.Seems white pines are gettng shaded out.
