The pine stand is mostly dominated by vegetation, thus provides a thick cover for small mammals and birds. If you travel into the woods early enough, you can hear the chirps from the trees. Although it is difficult to see birds amongst the canopy, the presence of noise is undeniable.
Mammals like chipmunks and squirrels live in the pine stand. They typically forage amongst the floor, looking for berries and/or nuts. As the weather becomes colder, the prevalence of squirrels increase as they prepare for the winter ahead.
