The North Tract of the Greenbelt Forest Preserve is a 100 acre parcel of the forest that once surrounded the City of Greenbelt. This woodland holds remnant pine barren communities--globally-rare communities which are considered ancient outliers of New Jersey Pine Barrens. We’ll hike up Blueberry Hill to view the Oak-Heath-Pine Forest and look for extensive stands of various ericads, as well as Chinquapin, Dwarf Chinquapin Oak, Pitch Pine, and view a few rare acidic seepage communities which are considered ancient outliers of New Jersey Pine Barrens.
