KEY:

  1. Eastern White Pine
  2. Sugar Maple
  3. Spiderwebs
  4. Various Foliage (Evergreen Wood Fern, Buckthorn)

 

As fall approaches, the ground cover at my chosen location in Centennial Woods increases. There are more pine needles and leaves fallen from the deciduous trees. Looking up reveals a change in foliage color from green to yellow and brown, with the evergreen pine needles from the Eastern white pines framing the smaller maples.

On this occasion, the only signs of wildlife other than plants in my location were a few small spider webs at the base of the Eastern white pine in the center of my 20 meter diameter plot.

After entering Centennial Woods through the Catamount Dr. entrance, walk along the trail for a quarter of a mile before turning left into the woods a few meters to find the location I have chosen for my phenology project. I selected this location because it was heavily wooded and within a peaceful part of Burlington.

The majority of the vegetation of my 20 diameter plot is trees, with little undergrowth and woody plant ground cover. The tree species included in the common woody plants are eastern white pines and sugar maples.
