According to, Pine Flatwoods are, "…the dominant upland habitat in Florida. Nearly half of the land area is pine flatwoods… In fact, the term “flatwoods” arose from the noticeable lack of topographic relief in the lands of this habitat. Extensive areas of pine flatwoods are found in the panhandle, northeast, central, and south Florida.
