Acer saccharum and Ostrya virginiana are replacing Pinus strobus and Quercus alba on the upland ridges of Pine Hollow State Forest Preserve. Any further detailed studies of the history of the pine in the preserve require not only the preservation of the pine-dominated stands but all upland stands. Since some of these are being logged within the preserve, future management should be changed to insure the protection of all the plants in the preserve. This can only be accomplished by formal legal dedication of the area as a preserve.
