Habitat Overview Plant members are shrubby or small tree species in the Rose family, including Cherries, Plums, Crab Apples, Hawthorns, and Serviceberries. This particular habitat is fairly generalized, occurring in at least two of the state's physiographic provinces and occupying a wide range of moisture regimes and soil types. Most of these species grow along forest edges and can be components of successional habitats; some are shade tolerant and grow in the understory of hardwood forests.
