Mingo Refuge has a wide variety of upland and lowland habitats. As a result many different kinds of trees and shrubs grow here. Of special interest are the State and National Champions found on the refuge. These trees (the largest of their kind that have been found) range in size from a Champion Spicebush only 12 feet tall to the National Champion Drummond Red Maple at 100 feet tall.
