Topography, Rangeland & Habitat

Twin Springs Ranch is a mixture of ridges and valleys that provide a wide array of elevation as you travel across. In the valleys where the springs run there is a good mixture of hardwood trees. On the ridges are mostly planted pine trees with a native brush understory. Multiple habitat improvement projects have taken place including a large area that has been restored into an oak savannah. These 20 acres have undergone heavy brush management opening the ground floor back up for native grasses and flowers. The results have been phenomenal both from an aesthetic perspective as well as the increase in the full spectrum of wildlife using the area. A portion of the timber has undergone prescribed fire and the native plants that have re-sprouted provide both excellent cover and forage. There are several areas that would be excellent sites for pond or even large lake construction if so desired. The entire ranch is high and dry with no flood plain.
