Barrens; dry open pitch pine forests, moist pitch pine lowlands,
oak uplands, and Atlantic white cedar stands that surround long
abandoned cranberry bogs. The property also supports a cluster
of naturally-formed, circular-shaped coastal plain ponds, sometimes
called "pingos." These wetlands are home to Pine Barrens
The Trust has added to the preserve though land donations from

with the NJ Department of Treasury to protect excess lands at
the New Lisbon Developmental Center.
