Weir White Oaks contains a southern dry-mesic forest in Lafayette County. The site is privately owned and so its exact location will not be disclosed here.
I was fortunate to be allowed by the DNR to visit this site. It is your prototypical southern Wisconsin forest. White oak is abundant here along with red oak, sugar maple, white ash, basswood, and the state special concern species of butternut. As my visit was in mid-July, I missed any potential spring ephemeral show, but that is a good reason to want to visit again. While there, I did find an old truck apparently left there to rust as well as the remains of an old house. Sometimes it is just great to have a wonderful walk in the woods.
