PLUM BRANCH. Plum Branch, also known as Plumer Creek, rises southwest of the Plum Branch Community in southwestern Stephens County (at 32°40' N, 99°04' W) and runs thirteen miles northeast to its mouth on Hubbard Creek Reservoir (at 32°42' N, 99°00' W). The creek begins in rolling hills, where scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses grow in clay and sandy loam soils; then it passes into rolling prairie with similar vegetation. The stream ends in flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clayey and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
