Shrubs found in this plant community include a variety of species characteristic of tallgrass woodlands such as: Black Huckleberry, Bush Honeysuckle, Common Blackberry, Dryland Blueberry, Low Sweet Blueberry, New Jersey Tea, Upland Willow, Smooth Wild Rose and Poison Ivy.
Unlike the low shrub and prairie understory found in the dry, tallgrass woodlands in High Park, the understory of moist Red Oak forests are characterized by tall shrubs. Beaked Hazel, Choke Cherry, Maple-leaved Viburnum, Mountain Maple, Nannyberry, Red-osier Dogwood, Round-leaved Dogwood and Witch-hazel form a dense shrub layer.
