Open Areas

Brushy Clearcuts, Brush Piles, Dense Undergrowth:   This category includes three different, but related habitat types:  Piles of brush created by forest or brush cutting; dense shrubs or saplings with little or no canopy of mature trees; and dense shrubs such as laurel within a forested habitat.

Non-brushy Clearings or Log Landings:  Recently cleared areas lacking dense brush, and surrounded by forest.

Upland Meadows and Grassy Fields:  Dry, cleared areas with little woody vegetation.  Ground covers are predominantly grasses but may include other low herbaceous plants such as clover, vetch, dewberry, mustards, and poison ivy.

Forb:  Dry, cleared areas with taller herbaceous vegetation such as goldenrod, queen-anne's lace, and sensitive fern.

Orchard:  Cleared areas planted with fruit trees, usually apples.  Includes both maintained and abandoned orchards.

Xmas Tree Plantations:  Small, maintained evergreen trees with short vegetation surrounding them, and no overstory of mature trees.
