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.
