Highlands, on the north side of Farragut Road, is categorized by our biologists as a Tuliptree forest. It is very different from the Chestnut Oak forest across Farragut. Here, the dominant tree is the Tulip Poplar, a species that tends to grow in abandoned farm fields. Within this section are roads that predate the resort years and, on the highest ground in Bay Ridge, the remnants of an old homestead. Also in this section is Kass Park, the community recreation area named for the family that bought the Bay Ridge woods in the 1940s and sold it to BRCA in 2002. As of March 19, 2019, only 10 plots (those without the adopting family’s name indicated) remain available for adoption in the Highlands section of forest.
