Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5, Nikon...
Dry Oak Forest in the Salisbury Town Forest. Thin, till-derived soil on this gentle south-facing slope supports a stunted forest of white, chestnut, and red oak. These species grow more than twice as tall elsewhere on deeper or wetter soils. Shrubs, herbs, and grasses take advantage of the ample sunlight passing through the sparse canopy. The similar size of the oaks suggests they are similar in age, and that they colonized the site after the previous vegetation was removed by logging or fire about a century ago. There are lots of seedlings of all three oak species, and if deer don't eat them, this forest type could persist here as the first generation trees mature and die.
