    Description

    An inventory of the woody vegetation of Nettie Hart Memorial Woodland in Champaign County, Illinois, has been conducted at approximately 10-year intervals from 1965 to 1995. Over this 30-year span, white oak, black oak, and northern red oak remained the most prominent components of the overstory community. At present, white oak and black oak are the major dominants. Northern red oak is decreasing in importance, while silver maple, American elm, slippery elm, and black cherry have all gained prominence. The hickory species have remained relatively stable since 1965.
