Flora

Presently, red and white oaks, hickory, elm, chestnut, yellow tulip, poplar, sweetgum, walnut, dogwood, cherry, mulberry, persimmon, sassafras, elm and cedar can be observed. An incredible array of ferns, orchids, fungi, and shrubs, some exotic and not previously identified in western Tennessee, grow along the extent of the creek. The remains of spruce, larch, and fir indicates that a northern pine forest existed in the uplands with beech, red maple, black walnut, ash, iron wood, birch, sweet gum, and oak in sheltered lowland areas.
