Since this is the only (or possibly one of two) stands of swamp forest remaining along the Baraboo R. worthy of mention, and since it contains the easternmost &/or the only inland (i.e., non-Wisconsin, non-Mississippi River) stations of several of the species listed above, this stand is certainly worthy of preservation. However, diseased elms and other species have just been cut out, badly degrading it.
