Seven years of invasive shrub removal from the Hartley Wood in The Arboretum at Penn State promoted plant diversity and facilitated passive natural regeneration of native canopy tree seedlings, understory woody species and woodland herbaceous species. Among them (top left to right) Indianpipe, mayapple and hepatica, (bottom left to right) spotted geranium, waxflower shinleaf and mapleleaf viburnum.
