Description: The old-growth characteristics of xeric pine and pine-oak woodlands are summarized from a survey of the available scientific literature. This type occurs throughout the South and is usually found as small inclusions on ridgetops and south-facing slopes in the mountains or on excessively drained, sandy uplands in gentle terrain. Historically, this type has had frequent fires. The overstory is rather open, and ericaceous shrubs commonly form the understory.

Keywords: Chestnut oak, downed logs, ericaceous shrubs, pitch pine, shortleaf pine, snags, Table Mountain pine, Virginia pine, xerophytic communities.
