Its forests seem more closely related to the Tulip Tree/Oak forest of the Tennessee hills to the east than the Oak/Hickory forest of the Ozarks to the west. Its unique flora and fauna have prompted establishment of several state and city parks, a national forest, multi-use lakes, and the nation's newest National Scenic Byway.

Recreation - Crowley's Ridge Region has been a recreational haven since the pioneer days. The Region offers plenty of camping, hiking, fishing, and swimming activities within the state parks.
