What I call "the forest" is mainly the dense wooded area making up the western two thirds of the property. This is a fairly typical Midwestern oak-hickory forest that forms a fairly dense canopy around a pond/swamp that helps keep the area watered. It is part of a much larger forested area, with direct forest covered connections to the north and west.

In the west we can see the river bottoms in the distance, and a nice thick forest just across the highway.
