The wooded acreage also boasts diversity throughout. The higher elevations are a mix of mature hardwoods and hemlocks with plentiful deer and turkey sign.

The areas around the fields are young apple and brush that was once field but is slowly reverting to woods, excellent for all types of birds and other wildlife.
