East Central Georgia is an area of mixed agricultural land and forest. Seasonal streams and wet bays are common in association with perennial streams, creeks and rivers. Numerous manmade ponds and lakes are scattered throughout our area.
Our agricultural land is composed of fine farm soil, with some light sandy areas and bottomland. Farmers grow cotton, corn, peanuts, soybeans, wheat, oats, sunflower, canola, sesame and various other specialty crops and vegetables. Over the last two decades, center pivot irrigation has become predominant for most farming operations, preventing damage from short term dry periods and supplementing our normal annual rainfall of about 45 inches. Pasture land is mostly Bermuda grass with complementing crops of ryegrass and millet.
Many acres of agricultural fields have been planted in pine trees, predominantly loblolly pines with some slash and longleaf. These trees are commonly thinned at 15 years old, possibly thinned again 5-7 years later and at some point clear cut and replanted. These fields may be returned to agriculture by harvesting the trees and removing the tree stumps.
Dry wooded areas are usually mixed pine and hardwood, while lower areas are usually hardwood. The typical hardwood forest is composed of oak, hickory, gum and ash with a scattering of beech and maple. Some of these older stands are of considerable value.
