Nature in Annetta North
Annetta North is located on the eastern edge of the Western Cross Timbers region of Texas, and since there is much natural habitat left, wildlife abounds. It is not uncommon to see deer, raccoons, armadillos, and even an occasional bobcat or coyote by the side of the road. There are also many cottontail rabbits and roadrunners.
In the springtime, you can see many bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, and other flowers along the country roads in Annetta North.
The vegetation in Annetta North is primarily thick brush, characteristic of the Cross Timbers. It consists of post oak, red oak, live oak, bur oak, elm, cedar, and various other trees and bushes. Prickly pear cacti and yuccas are very common, as well as poison ivy.
In the eastern part of the town, there is Quail Ridge, along which runs the road with the same name. The Clear Fork and South Fork of the Trinity River flow through the valleys on either side of the ridge, and converge southeast of the end of the ridge. Quail Ridge itself is a branch off of the central ridge that goes through Parker County. The center of the town is in Annetta Valley, through which flows the South Fork.
