This hardwood stand is about 40 years old and has not received any improvement treatments. Squirrels nest and feed, turkeys roost, deer eat the acorns and tiny tender twigs called browse. Some species of birds live in the tree canopies and other species favor the low growing brush.

Piedmont forests usually include various species of oak and hickory, yellow poplar, red maple, sweet gum, black gum, and other dominate species. The understory will include dogwood, hackberry and many other species.
