Landco Project (Stevens Tract)

Property Description

Protection of this large and wonderfully position property contributes greatly to the Francis Beidler Forest and protection of the Edisto River at the confluence of the Four Holes swamp. Composed largely of mature bottomland hardwood forest and mature mixed pine/hardwood upland and loblolly forest, this property will add protection to 2.8 miles of frontage along the Edisto River. In doing so, it will provide important storm water run-off mitigation to the nearby developable areas. The tract provides potential habitat to several wildlife species of concern, particularly spotted turtle and Swainson's Warbler. The dense thickets which occur along the property's edge, developed where sun light was able to penetrate from the cleared sand mining part of the tract, has created potentially great Swainson's habitat. Management in Beidler Forest focuses on expanding and improving habitat for migratory bird, which enhances habitat for a variety of other plant and animal communities.
