Gray treefrogs are found in woodlands and marshes during
the summer. They show a distinct preference for wetlands
ringed with shrubs, especially willow and dogwood.
They breed in marshes, ponds and the still backwaters of
streams in the spring.
Male grey treefrogs are very territorial and will
defend their calling perches with encounter calls, shoving,
kicking, and jumping.
Eggs are laid singly or in groups and are attached to
submerged plants. Because the eggs are laid late in the spring
and early summer, tadpoles hatch and mature very quickly and
usually transform by late August or early September.
