DescriptionMidco Pine Flats is a 2,223-acre region of Peck Ranch Conservation Area (CA) that is classified as a pine-oak plains land type association. Extensive logging in the early 1900s removed most overstory shortleaf pine allowing oak to become the primary overstory component. In 2000, Missouri Department of Conservation staff initiated a pineoak woodland restoration project with the primary goal of determining whether management practices (selective black oak harvest, fire, leave pine) in the pine-oak-vaccinium natural community at Peck Ranch are restoring the natural community. The study used prescribed fire, harvest, or both as primary restoration tools.
