The entire ranch is covered with Live Oaks, Bull Mesquites, Hackberries and Cedar Elms and some larger Cedars. There are three drainages through the property that would offer excellent sites for putting in a large lake(s) and the ridgelines offer excellent homesites. At the entrance of the ranch there is an open field of about 60 acres that is covered in lush native grasses.
