The Deciduous Forest community noted was dominated by White Oak and Red Oak with Red Maple, and Swamp White Oak as associates. The understory was characterized by regenerating Red Maple, Hop Hornbeam, Black Cherry and White Elm, with Downy Serviceberry, Green Ash, and Choke Cherry. The herbaceous layer was a mix of Avens, Common Strawberry, Common Cinquefoil, and Asters. A unique Deciduous Savanna community dominated by Hawthorn was also recorded for this study site. Associated species included Green Ash, White Elm, Gray Dogwood and Common Buckthorn. The understory was a mix of Grasses, and Goldenrods including, Rough Goldenrod, Early Goldenrod, and Grass-leaved Goldenrod. There are a total of 63 recorded taxa (for this study site.

General Summary: This study site includes a number of small urban forests fragmented throughout the area between Thorold Townline Road to the west and Dorchester Road, just east of the 420 interchange to the east. It extends from Beaverdams Road in the north to McLeod Road in the south. A very small percentage of this study site was visited by the NAI teams during the course of this project. The Deciduous Forests were mostly Red Oak and Red Maple with Green Ash, Sugar Maple, and American Beech. The understory was mostly regenerating canopy species with Spicebush and a ground cover of False Solomon‟s Seal, Climbing Poison-ivy, Canada Enchanter‟s Nightshade, and Garlic Mustard. The Deciduous Swamp communities were dominated by Red Maple and Swamp Maple, with associated Green Ash and White Elm. The ground cover in these areas was mostly Sensitive Fern and Canada Enchanter‟s Nightshade. A Meadow Marsh community was also noted for this site. It was characterized by Reed Canary Grass, False Nettle, and Motherwort. There are a total of 167 recorded taxa for this study site.
