Geographical and Species Information!

Native plants and animals

Some native plants are the Beech Trees, Sugar Maple trees, Eglantine, and Flowering Dogwood.The Beech Trees bark is light colored, and very smooth. It produces nuts that fall before the leaves turn, the nuts are edible. It grows on a wide range of soil types. The Beech's bark is extremely thin and its easy to be scared. In the spring the Beech trees and sugar maple trees begin to produce thin leaves that are useful for soaking up sunlight. In the cooler temperatures, in the fall the trees shed their leaves and they begin to change color and it cuts of the supply of water to leaves.Some native species are the Tawny Owl, Raccoon, Black Bear, and the Chipmunk. The adaptations for these species are that they have to migrate and hibernate in cold weather. A black bear lives in a deciduous forest, its thick fur keeps it warm during the winter, its claws help them catch fish and climb trees. The chipmunk lives in the wooded area of the deciduous forest.
