Most of Indiana’s forests are secondary growth and contain a wide spectrum of trees, including various types of hickories, sycamores, maples, and oaks, which together offer a spectacular display of color in fall.
Flowering trees, such as tulip trees (; also called yellow poplars) and dogwoods, illuminate the forests in spring.
In the early 19th century Indiana was almost entirely covered with the deciduous hardwood forests common to the eastern United States.
The nonforested portion of the state, primarily in the northwestern corner, consisted of grasslands—an extension into Indiana of the central Great Plains.
Its northern areas lie in the mainstream of the industrial belt that extends from Pennsylvania and New York to Illinois.
This is largely a reflection of the early settlement of the region by migrants from the South, who brought with them a hearty distrust of the federal government.
Thus, Indiana’s population is to some extent black and Hispanic in the urban north and mostly white in the less industrialized south.
