Driftless Prairies: Native Habitat Restoration

Nature inspires awe!

Trees, Shrubs, and Vines Inventory

Photos and information about each of these is forthcoming.

This is a complete inventory, meaning that it include invasives. I will highlight the invasive trees, shrubs, and vines in red. Although some of these are unwanted in the historical context of a woodlands or savanna in the Driftless Area, they are not considered invasive. Interestingly, there are some natives that carry the invasive label.
