After many years of harvest and replacement I believe the park is all native trees. The shrubs are nearly all native. Garden clubs have their lists but are not absolutely native plant restricted. The worst flowering plants have been eliminated. This is desirable because we are for the most part living in the forest where invasive and non-native trees are not replaced when removed. Open farmland is percentage wise very small in our part of Pennsylvania which is still largely forest from here to the Great Lakes. This picture is typical. You can see the small farms peeking out of the forest.
