Representation of key species in northeastern sites
role of the white pine and tuliptree raises interesting questions on how
species common to Mohawk are represented in the other top northeastern
sites. The table below presents a comparison of the 10 top species in
MTSF to see how they are represented at the other sites. The
species featured are white
pine, white ash, hemlock, bitternut hickory, black cherry, American
basswood, sugar maple, northern red oak, red maple, and American beech.
These are the species that give MTSF its RHI of 136.0.
for the represented sites
Red is #1, Green is #2, and Blue is #3.
MTSF places 1st, 2nd, or 3rd
in 8 of the 10 species.
Zoar Valley has placements for 7 species.
Cook Forest has placements for 5 species.
Species that boost the RHI at some of the other sites that
are not represented in Mohawk include tuliptree and sycamore.
