    Description

    Pine dominated more than 4 million acres of the Missouri Ozarks prior to European settlement. These pineries supported a diverse array of plants and animals, including several taxa no longer present in the state (e.g., Desmodium ochroleucum, Picoides borealis, Sitta pusilla). Intensive logging activity and subsequent land management practices at the close of the 19th century resulted in a complete loss of functional pinery systems, although shortleaf pines continue to be a common component of mixed woodlands in the region.
