Comprised of three adjacent forest ecosystems Radrick Forest is the perfect place to demonstrate how different forest ecosystems evolve from contrasting physiography (geography and parent soils). We will discuss the glacial origins of the landscape, and closely examine the soils of communities dominated by Oak-Hickory, Southern Dry Oak, and Southern Mesic forest types. There will be an in-depth review of the diverse Woody Plants growing within these ecosystems.
