Before you is an old field that also is in a stage of transition. In approximately 30 years, this area, too, will become a young woodland. Some of the plants associated with this field include ragweed, the plant with the pollen that can produce sneezing in people with "hay fever." Other grasses and wildflowers include chickweed, yarrow and hawkweed. As you leave this field, ahead and to your left you will enter an area of white pines, which were planted many years ago. The "edge" effect that is created between the forested and non-forested areas is very beneficial to wildlife by providing adequate cover and food sources.
