2012 FOREST ASSESSMENT REPORT
Environmental Systems Analysis, Inc. 162 West Street, Annapolis, MD 21401
The Bay Ridge Civic Association (BRCA), which owns Bay Ridge Forest (the Forest), desires a benchmark inventory of the various plants, wildlife, and soils that exist in the two main areas of the Forest in order to inform future management and stewardship. Environmental Systems Analysis, Inc. was tasked with surveying the underlying tree, shrub, and ground layer plants of the Forest; quantitatively and qualitatively surveying and documenting the vegetative species for a plant inventory of the Forest; observing wildlife and signs of wildlife within the Forest; and surveying the soils type and conditions within the Forest. We followed Maryland’s Natural Resource Inventory and Forest Stand Delineation methodology to document the forest conditions.
