    Old-growth forest The trees stand tall and thick of girth. The air about them is cool and moist. The soil is rich and matted by a thick organic blanket. People marvel at the forest, imbibing its grandeur, coveting its timber. In another area, across the mountains, perhaps, the trees stand stooped and scraggly. The air about them is parched. A wedge of prairie ( on the map) stretches from eastern Kansas and Oklahoma across central Illinois and into Indiana. This region is called the Prairie Peninsula. Characteristics of the Eastern Broadleaf Forest Tall, broadleaf, deciduous trees dominate the Eastern Broadleaf Forest. In Illinois, oak and hickory dominate a majority of the forests.
