Site Description: Early- to late successional hardwood forest dominated by pin oak and sweetgum dominate the 200 acres found at Cedar Hill Swamp WMA. A few acres of overgrown fields are found near the entrance.
The only remaining swamp land is on private property adjacent to the WMA on the opposite side of the CSX railroad tracks.
The wetland (again, on private property) provides breeding territory for Wood Duck, Tree Swallow, Red-headed Woodpecker, American Kestrel, Red-winged Blackbird, Common Yellowthroat, Prothonotary Warbler and Green Heron.
Loggerhead Shrikes winter on the farms around the swamp.
