Manassas National Battlefield Park supports several different forest communities. The woodlands are made up of basic oak-hickory forests, acidic oak-hickory forests, mesic forests, mountain bottomland forests, mountain swamp forests, upland depression swamp forests, eastern white pine hardwood forests, and Virginia pine- Easter red cedar successional forests. These comunities are shaped by varying biotic and abiotic components.
