How many acres does Greenacres manage in Indian Hill?
Greenacres has over 600 acres in Indian Hill.
Why does the forest here not look like other local woodlots?
We have worked hard to remove invasive species such as honeysuckle and multi-flora rose. These invasive plants are very common in Southern Ohio, and have changed the way forests look. Because invasives are so common, many people have forgotten what a forest “should” look like. Our forests are a work in progress, but the more open understory is the natural condition of temperate hardwood forests.
