Results from Area 2. Area 2 is everything up hill from the yellow rope in the picture.

Initial Results:

Sugar Maple………………: 1 (Acer sacharum)

Elm……………………………………: 1 (Ulmus)
Callery Pear……………: 2 (Pyrus calleryana)

Total………………………………: 113

** Where possible, trees were identified to the species level. In some cases (ash, hickory, elm) volunteers were only capable of identification down to the genus.

The most prolific tree in this survey area was the Ash (with 60 occurrences). I'm not sure what to think about this. These appeared to be white ash and they'll all likely succumb to the emerald ash borer. I'm going to let them go for now but if they get big enough to cause problems when they die and fall, I'll have to think more carefully about it. The total of 113 seedlings and saplings brings the running total to 235. Below is a snapshot of Area 2 (everything to the right of the yellow rope)...
