Description: From Virginia to Texas, there are about 30 million acres of forests in swamps, creek margins, and river bottoms. These bottomland areas can be efficient producers of high-quality hardwoods, and they are unexcelled as habitat for many species of game and nongame birds and animals. In fact, the southern bottomlands are extremely diverse in species, sites, wood qualities, and uses. Stands may be even- or many-aged with essentially one or, more commonly, over 20 commercial species. Factors entering into management decisions about these stands are generally recognized and discussed in this article. The landowner should realize, however, that sound judgment, experience, and advice of a professional forester are needed for a good management program.
