Official State Soil: Dickson 
September 15th 

Forests of oak and tulip poplar flourish in Dickson soils. They are home to raccoons and the Tennessee cave salamander. Clean water seeps from Dickson soils into streams where box turtles and channel catfish are found.

Some farmers clear Dickson soils to plant corn and soybeans, while others keep them in pasture for grazing livestock.
