In winter, pin cherry
had the largest bite size (2.3 [+ or -] 1.4 g) under closed canopy and the smallest bite size under open canopy (0.4 [+ or -] 0.1 g).
Lilac bushes, cellar holes, and stone-lined wells were all that remained of the five farms that previously covered the area; and pioneer trees such as hawthorn, poplar, birches, and pin cherry

In the early stages, vegetation is often dominated by the fast-growing pioneer tree species, pin cherry
