The Greenfield Treestand (also known as J.A. & W.E. Werner Parks) is a linear urban tableland forest consisting of aspen and balsam poplar trees with a healthy understory. The stand is separated in its middle by 114 Street with the larger of the two sections located on the east. This treestand provides habitat for many urban-adapted species of birds and small mammals; however, due to its size and location within a predominantly urban area, does not provide habitat or connections for larger and non-urban species. The site does offer an excellent opportunity to view native vegetation and wildlife in the heart of the city’s south side.
