This panorama was taken mid january in Connetquot State Park near Islip, Nassau County on Long Island, New York State. A typical scene from Pine/Oak dominant forest, the meadow areas are mowed to retain openness. A part of the Pine Barrens ecotype, the normally dominant Pitch Pine (Pinus rigida) is becoming increasingly sparse as more shade tolerant deciduous trees and shrubs move in. The lack of regular fire events slows the re-establishment of the pine trees. Fire would clear out woody undergrowth and provide the open sunny conditions necessary for pine tree seeds to germinate. The soil is very sandy and lean but still supports a variety of ericaceous shrubs and number of oak species (Q. palustris, Q. velutina, Q. marilandica, Q. illicifolia, Q. stellata, Q. rubra, Q. alba, etc.) and other hardwoods. We also discovered good stands of Inkberry (Ilex glabra). We visited to collect Pitch Pine cones but were dismayed to find all the trees quite mature and tall with few younger more accessable trees.
