Verbatim Coordinates: T06N R01W sec11
Georeference Remarks: Latitude/Longitude was derived from the Township, Range, Section location. This causes an imprecision.
Habitat: In shade at base of large Polypody covered sandstone boulder, mesic NE-facing white pine relict with white and yellow birch above river. Assoc.: Dryopteris marginalis, Sambucus pubens, and Acer spicatum, little else. Additional notes for 5573: An unusual habitat. This is the largest and the coolest, dampest of these northern "relicts" that I've seen in the state. The white pine constitute a virtual forest, with only a few yellow and white birches as tree associates. Abundant Acer spicatum and Sambucus pubens form a dense shrubby understory and overtop the herbaceous stratum, which consists only of ferns. The latter grow nearly as luxuriantly as Sohagnum in northern bogs, carpeting the boulder-strewn steep slopes. The relict grades into rather dry white oak woods on the bluff-top above and into red oak-sugar maple woods at the pastured base. One colony see, this 2 yds. sq.
