Description

Little River WMA is primarily bottomland hardwoods and often floods from late winter through spring. Common tree species include bitter pecan and overcup and willow oak. There are also several cypress-tupelo sloughs. Swamp privet, water elm, mayhaw, and seedlings of the overstory make up the midstory. Understory species growth varies greatly with elevation. The higher areas within the floodplain support greenbrier, blackberry, and peppervine as well a variety of annual forbs and grasses. Areas of low elevation have very limited understory growth. The upland sites are composed of loblolly pine and stands of mixed pine hardwoods. There is a diversity of tree and understory species in these areas. LDWF manages this WMA with annual prescribed fires to improve wildlife habitat.
