Shrubs Of The Sawyer Woodlot

      As you walk through the Sawyer Preservation Woodlot, you will be greeted by an entire spectrum of vegetation. In this section, we focus on that found near eye level -- shrubs -- those that are in our face but we may know little about -- and tend to ignore.

Shrub - defined...
      A woody plant of relatively low height -- usually less than 10 ft (3 m) tall, having several stems -- none of which is dominant, arising from the base and lacking a single trunk; sometimes called a bush.

In 2008, the woodlot was surveyed with an inventory taken of the shrubs present. The following is a list of those identified with links to further information about them.
