American Witch-Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana)

On this point of interest you will find an American Witch-Hazel along with many smaller ones. You will typically find these in forest margins and stream banks. I incorperated this species because I thought the seed dispersal mechanism was quite interesting. When ready, the seeds will explode sending the seeds up to 40 feet from the tree.
