The majority of Little River WMA normally floods seasonally from late Winter through Spring.
The area is primarily bottomland hardwoods. Common tree species include overcup oak, bitter pecan, willow oak. There are also several cypress-tupelo sloughs. Swamp privet, water elm, mayhaw, and overstory regeneration make up the midstory. Understory species growth varies greatly with elevation. The higher areas within the floodplain support green briar, blackberry, and pepper vine as well a variety of annual forbs and grasses. Areas of low elevation have very limited understory growth. The upland sites are forested in pine plantations and stands of mixed pine-hardwoods. A tremendous variety of tree and understory species are found in these areas.
