Inventory and Analysis of the Canopy and Subcanopy Vegetation of theRouge River Floodplain, Dearborn, Michigan

An inventory of the of the canopy and subcanopy trees <1 cm diameter  of the Rouge River floodplain between Ford Road and the Henry and  Clara Ford estate has been conducted from 2  2 to the present.   Preliminary analysis of more than 11,    stems indicate that the  species composition change with elevation above the river.  In an   area seven feet above the low flow level, Sugar Maple is dominant,   while at two feet about the river, Silver Maple, Red Ash, and   Boxelder are dominant. Most of the three species of ash trees    (Fraxinus americana, F. pennsylvanica, and F. niger) are dead due to   Emerald Ash Borer.
