Often called "The Big Woods". This stand is one of the most
awe-inspiring tracts in existence.
For the past 50 years, managed under the Stoddard-Neel Selection Method
(USDA 1995) of
timber-wildlife management. The stand is frequently-burned, contains many
very large trees,
and a diversity of plant communities. All native flora and fauna typical
of pinelands can be found.
Threats: urban sprawl
No formal research has taken place in this stand. Several fire management-related
notes have been
published by Neel, Komarek and others related to Tall Timbers Research
