This study examined which species can best survive along the edge of a woodlot in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON. Data was collected in 2017, by measuring the distance of trees and saplings from three different sample points in four separate communities of the woodland. Tree Community 1 is along the edge of the forest, Tree Community 2 and 3 respectively are found more towards the centre of the forest, and Tree Community 4 is a pine plantation.

Any progress of the human at the expense of the larger life community must ultimately lead to a diminishment of the human life itself” (Berry, 1988).
