    Though we're not able to purchase land at this time, I still enjoy reading ads for properties in the area to see what's around. Please educate me on these two terms I often see as part of property descriptions:
    Hardwood "bottoms" (the flat land below a rolling area of land with hardwood trees??)
    "Fenced and cross-fenced"

    Thanks

    "Fenced and cross-fenced"
    Has a perimeter fence and a fence across the property somewhere, presumably to create a pasture or to keep the animals away from the house and/or other buildings.

    'Hardwood bottoms' could mean the deciduous trees (like oak, beech, birch, etc.) that are growing in a flood plain or river bottoms.
