Stevens Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Very tall white pines dominate the shorelines of both the mainland and the large island. They seem to thrive on the thin soil above the hard granite outcroppings. In contrast, hardwoods need more soil for their taproots, which generally go straight down.

This explains, at least in part, the dearth of very large hardwoods along most of these granite-laden shorelines, while at the same time the white pines and other conifers can grow to great size there. One wonders, however, how such a thin layer of soil can support such towering trees. Perhaps they wedge their roots into the fissures in the underlying rocks. Prominent fish species: smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, white perch, and chain pickerel (brown trout have been introduced recently)."
