Low elevation, just south of Roseburg Oregon. Let's see now:
doug fir, white pine, ponderosa pine, incense cedar
madrone, white oak, vine maple, bigleaf maple
cottonwood, alder, chinquoapin, willow, myrtle
wild prune, apple, thorn apple, wild apricot, wild cherry, mock orange
hazel, black walnut, mountain ash, pacific yew,
plus a couple of unidentified species.
This is a 93 acre site with both north and south slopes, and a stream
running through it. I think there are two different species of willow,
and three different types of wild plum.
