Trees, Vines & Shrubs

The plants listed in this section are native plants that have woody stems. They are plants that grow from the above ground portions of the plants; new growth does not arise solely from the root system. Trees are defined as a woody plant that generally has a single main trunk and grows to a height of over 15 feet.

A shrub is defined as a perennial plant that generally has more than one main stem and grows to a height of less than 15 feet.

Vines are plants with a weak stem that climbs or creeps on, along or up another surface.

This section is fairly complete for the Christy Woods field property, but additional woody plants are found on the other field station properties.
