Description: There’s a tendency to think of the hardwood forests of the South as pristine, undisturbed, and unchanging places that provide habitat for diverse animal and plant species. Indeed, having large blocks of mature forest is important for many wildlife species. The leafy tree canopy, tall trunks, hard mast, dead trees with holes, cool and shady micro-environment, and thick leaf litter provide places to nest, forage, and hide for birds, salamanders, and other animals.
