On this point of interest you will find a young Black Ash. This tree in a very poorly drained wetland area. This is very typicall for this species as it normally will be found in very wet and swampy enviornments. A good identifying characteristic for these trees is their bark has a very spongy texture to it. I incorperated this species into my tour because it is one of my favorite trees because of its bark texture and its uniqueness of where it grows.
