The Ossipee Pine Barrens preserve is roughly 3,000 acres, located in east-central NH between Ossipee and Silver Lake. Glacially-deposited sandy outwash make this area’s soil unfit for cultivation and some types of hardwood communities, but the fire and drought adapted pine-barrens community is well-suited to the drier conditions and many of the projected climate changes. About half of the property is comprised of the pine barrens ecosystem, with the remainder made up of hardwood forest, wetlands, and other shore and riparian communities.
