Name: Carya cordiformis - Prunus serotina / Ageratina altissima Forest
Reference: NatureServe Biotics 2019
Description: This association is characterized by the dominance or codominance of <i>Carya cordiformis</i> on mid to high floodplain terraces. Soils are derived from alluvial deposits and consist of fine sandy loams and loamy fine sand. Codominant or associate canopy species include <i>Quercus rubra, Juglans cinerea, Prunus serotina, Ulmus americana, Fraxinus americana</i>, and <i>Acer saccharinum</i>. The canopy is usually somewhat open, occasionally closed, and about 20 m in height. The subcanopy cover is usually 20 to 30%. Composition of the subcanopy is similar to the canopy layer and may also include <i>Acer rubrum</i> and <i>Acer saccharum</i>. The tall-shrub and short-shrub layers are usually sparse and include occasional saplings of canopy and subcanopy species, as well as scattered individuals of <i>Rosa multiflora, Lonicera morrowii, Berberis thunbergii, Rubus occidentalis</i>, and <i>Rubus flagellaris</i>. The herbaceous layer is weedy, with invasive exotic species common or dominant, including <i>Microstegium vimineum, Alliaria petiolata</i>, and <i>Glechoma hederacea</i>. Common native species include <i>Ageratina altissima var. altissima, Hydrophyllum virginianum</i>, and <i>Carex</i> spp.
