Atlantic coastal pine barrens

WWF Abstract

Within the Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens ecoregion, three major communities provide a home for an array of wildlife. The pine-oak forests dominated by post oak and blackjack oak are the tallest of the three forest types. At the other extreme, the dwarf pine plains contain short pitch pines and blackjack oaks that are often less than 9 feet (3 m) tall. Between these two extremes lie the pine-shrub oak forests, a rare community dominated by pitch pines.
