Atlantic Coastal Plain Dry and Dry-Mesic Oak Forest

This ecological system encompasses oak-dominated hardwood forests of dry to moderately dry sites in the Atlantic Coastal Plain from southeastern Virginia to southeastern Georgia. The sites where this forest occurs have been somewhat protected from most wildland fires by some combination of steep topography, landscape isolation from the spread of wildland fire, and limited flammability of the vegetation. It is commonly found along the bluffs and slopes of rivers and creeks. For more information, see NatureServe Explorer.
