Description: Hurricane Hugo was probably one of the most destructive hurricanes to assault the forests of the Eastern United States in recorded history. Four and one-half million acres were damaged in North Carolina and South Carolina, an estimated 21.4 billion board feet of timber were destroyed or damaged, and several federally listed endangered species (red-cockaded woodpecker, bald eagle, and red wolf) were impacted. This toll does not include property damage or human suffering in the United States or the destruction in Puerto Rico. Hurricane Hugo is probably the most studied and best documented hurricane ever to have reached landfall in the mainland. In addition to the reports in this compilation, more reports can be expected as on-going and new studies of forest damage, restoration, and rehabilitation are completed.
