The species include Carya ovata, Comus drummondii, Crataegus mollis, Fraxinus americana, Prunus serotina, Elaeagnus umbellata, and Rosa multiflora.
Crataegus mollis is the most commonly occupied corticolous substrate, weathered dolomite is the most common saxicolous substrate and weathered wood is the most common lignicolous substrate.
The woody vegetation consists mainly of thickets of Crataegus mollis. Throughout this unit, exposed beds of dolomitic flagstone occur, as well as granitic erratics.
The woody vegetation includes second growth woodlands (Celtis occidentalis, Crataegus mollis, Maclura pomifera and Populus deltoides) as well as a few groves of oaks (Quercus alba, Q.
Mature forests (Prunus serotina and Quercus spp.) and second growth woodlands (Acer negundo, Crataegus mollis, Populus deltoides and Ulmus americana) also occur throughout.
