Holland Bottoms Willow Oak Forest Preserve is located in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain. Jacks Bayou, a tributary of Bayou Two Prairie, bisects the natural area. Extensive hardwood flatwoods dominated by mature stands of willow oak characterize the natural area, with more diverse bottomland hardwood forests occupying lower sites adjacent to streams. Only 18 percent of the bottomland hardwood forests that occurred across the Lower Mississippi Valley currently remain. The natural area falls within the Holland Bottoms Wildlife Management Area and is co-managed with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC).
