    In southeastern Coastal Plain streams, wood debris can be very abundant and is recruited from extensive forested floodplains. Despite importance of wood debris, there have been few opportunities to examine recruitment and redistribution of wood in an undisturbed setting, particularly in the southeastern Coastal Plain. Following extensive flooding in 1994, measurements of individual downed trees (species, dbh, orientation, distance from base-flow channel and condition) were made across replicated riparian landforms in a Gulf Coastal Plain 5th-order stream. Annually, the fate of these trees was determined and newly recruited trees were noted. More than 300 downed trees have been recorded.
