There are several land classifications, one of that is grassland.
By nature, grassland is usually filled with dense rocks and minerals.
Big trees can not survive nor grew because the the root system can not penetrate deep into the soil. Except for some scattered portion, big trees grew, like the lumped and scattered mango trees in the hills below the tall mountain range.
Mt Anggas is both a mineral and a grassland. The hills were grassland with little top soil but can be farmed.
The taller one in the background is filled with dense rocks and minerals from top to bedrock. Hence, only a particular kind of grass and shrubs grew. [Source: Raul B. Ilogon]
