Low-fair quality Boreal Forest on the Superior clay plain immediately adjacent to Lake Superior. The canopy is 30-70% closed and composed mainly of aspen and white spruce (avg 16in dbh, max 33in dbh). Snags greater than 4in dbh were scattered, less than 20m of any given point. The groundlayer is dominated by Calamagrostis canadensis, Rubus parviflorus, Rubus pubescens, Eurybia macrophylla and Aralia nudicaulis. Notable is the significant amount of spruce regeneration. There were a number of invasive species present on the site, although all were uncommon to occasional. A portion of the site is dominated by black ash, including areas that appear to occasionally hold water.
