    The largest forest ecosystem in Missouri is the million-acre Mark Twain National Forest. This forest is on the northern hills of the Ozark Mountains and spreads over 29 counties. Common trees in Missouri forests include the scarlet oak and Missouri hickory.

Proceedings of the Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project Symposium: an experimental approach to landscape research; June 3 . To determine the ongoing and future needs of Missouri's forests, the Missouri Department of Conservation has undertaken a massive project that will offer valuable data in a long-term, top-to-bottom study of the Ozark forest resource. The Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP) will provide the foundation to decide the best ways to.
