Openings in, edges of, and along trails through northern hardwoods.
First collected by D. Henson in 1984 in Schoolcraft Co., but reported without a supporting specimen from "near Floodwood" (Schoolcraft Co.) by Dodge in 1915 (Dodge, 1921). Now known to be relatively widespread in the Upper Peninsula, and apparently increasing there and elsewhere. The leaves of D. compressa do not curl tightly upon drying the way those of D. spicata do, lending a different appearance to the tufts.
