Habitat Overview Characterized by species that occur in a wide range of upland hardwoods, excepting xeric, open woodlands; soil types range from rich to acidic. In the Mountains, habitats supporting these species are widespread, particularly at higher elevations. In the Coastal Plain, conversely, habitats are more limited to moist slopes.
