Arboretum Natural Areas
In addition to the 104-acre Interpretive Center site in Picayune, the
Crosby Arboretum maintains seven natural areas in Pearl River, Hancock,
and Lamar counties. These areas comprise nearly 700 acres and are being
preserved and managed for research.
The natural areas were selected with diversity of vegetation types in
mind. Longleaf pine forests, slash pine- hardwoods, sweetbay-tupelo-swampbay,
beech-magnolia, baldcypress-tupelo, bottomland hardwoods, hillside bogs,
and savannas are just some of the forest types represented.
