DescriptionOur knowledge of successional relations in tidewater river swamps is scant. In an effort to increase our knowledge, the vegetation in a virgin stand of baldcypress (Taxodium distichum), swamp tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica var. biflora), and water tupelo (N. aquatica) was compared with the new growth in an adjacent 8-year-old clear-cut. area in the Chowan River swamp in Hertford County, North Carolina. The soil, a dark brown muck, was 6 to over 10 feet deep, and numerous buried trees made it difficult to measure depth to the sandy clay loam subsoil. Estimates of the organic matter, using the loss by ignition method in four composite samples, ranged from 81.0 to 87.2 percent.
