The Wade Tract Preserve: A Window
to the Past

The
Wade Tract Preserve is a 200-acre (85 ha) old-growth research
plot managed by Tall Timbers Research Station surrounded by
a 3,200-acre (1,260 ha) private hunting estate near Thomasville,
GA. The Wade Tract is one
of only
a very few old-growth stands
that has been managed with fire for decades. It is also the
only stand specifically dedicated to research purposes. The
history of research conducted on the Wade Tract, coupled with
the extreme
rarity
of this old-growth forest type, make it one of the most important
ecological research sites anywhere.
