Woody plant succession, Ojibway Prairie Complex

Follow the growth of trees and the invasion of woody plants in the air photos shown below from 1948, 1962 and 1978. The site is located at the end of Lansing Street and is part of the Spring Garden Prairie.

Due to a lack of periodic burning prairie much of this area has become dominated by dogwood thickets, Pin Oak and Swamp White Oak in wet areas while Black Oak, Sassafras and Pignut Hickory dominate in dry sites.
