Along the river there should be a riparian forest that gradually becomes a southern mesic forest as it travels upward along the gradient. This paper explores the different tree types that are along the Pike River and as it moves upwards away from the river to 22 meters away. This paper concludes with data analysis on the types of trees that occupy the forest along with their density and dominance relative to the other trees along those same gradients.
