Piney Woods forests

WWF Abstract

A variety of oak, hickories, and pines, along with prickly pear cactus and hundreds of species of wildflowers, fill the Piney Woods Forests ecoregion. Little of the long-leaf pine forest that once dominated this ecoregion remains, but you can still hear the drumming of an occasional red-cockaded woodpecker-an endangered species that's dependent upon mature pine forests.
