The purpose of this study was to compare the present natural wooded vegetation of Beloit township with that prior to settlement by white man and to evaluate any changes indicated. For present day composition, data from Chamberlain Springs are of primary importance, with observations on farm woodlots in the area adding supplementary information. For the vegetational pattern in the early 1800s the writings of early visitors and settlers are helpful.
