DescriptionBottomland hardwood forests normally regenerate with species found in the overstory. These species reflect the timing, duration, depth of water, and nature of the sediment in past flooding. The longer water stands during the growing season and the deeper the sediment, the fewer the species that are able to survive. Flooding patterns often change over the life of a bottomland hardwood stand. If conditions moderate, more species can regenerate the site; if flooding worsens and sediment builds up, fewer species can occupy the site.
