Hat Island, a small tree covered island in northern Lake Michigan was used as a bomb target in 1943, during the course of which the central forest was destroyed. In the course of its revegetation, fireweeds culminated in 1947, to be followed by a sod grassland into which shrubs are invading. The first tree appeared in 1948, a single seedling of Prunus pennsylvanica.
