Description: Greentree reservoirs are a viable option for creating habitat and hunting opportunities for migrating waterfowl. Unfortunately, the prolonged annual flooding often associated with greentree reservoir management can be highly detrimental to many of the desirable tree species in these stands. In the summer of 2004, a total of 327 plot centers were established in a greentree reservoir under an annual flooding regime. At each plot center, a nested plot design was used to establish a 1/5-acre overstory plot, a 1/40-acre midstory plot, and a 1/100-acre understory plot. Our objective was to characterize the vegetative composition and abundance in a bottomland hardwood stand which had been under an annual flooding regime for over 50 years. Results indicate that overcup oak is dominant in all three vertical layers while the more desirable willow oak is common only in the overstory.
