life is extremely diverse and ranges from sun-loving species to those that grow in dense shade. Tree cover dominates the publicly
owned acreage, and is a significant component on privately owned lands. Oak-hickory is the predominant timber type, however,
many other commercially important timber species also occupy significant acreages. More than 500 wildlife species can be found
within the Forest, including 48 mammals, 237 birds, 52 reptiles, 57 amphibians, and 109 species of fish. There are seven federally-listed
threatened and endangered species inhabiting the Forest, as well as 33 species which are considered regionally sensitive,
and 114 Forest-listed species.
