The area surrounding the Little Woodshed offers a perfect opportunity for woodland restoration. Currently, it has a few White Pines, Redbuds, Maples, and Walnuts, but not enough to generate significant shade. The entire area has been mowed in past years, but this will stop so that a healthy understory can begin developing.
