Latitude/Longitude was derived from the Township, Range, Section location. This causes an imprecision.
Good quality stand of swamp conifer forest (Larix laricina--Pciea mariana, latter at its S-most limit in Wis) with many bog shrubs (Aronia, Ilex, Alnus, Ericaceae,) and acid bog plants (orchids, sedges, Smilacina trifolia, Drosera rotundifolia); Sphagnum capillifolium the ground cover dominant. Appears like a N bog in a relatively S location. Avg. tree size 1-5" dbh.
