    Meandering along the eastern edge of the Mississippi River Valley from Cairo, Illinois, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, are 4% million acres of forested uplands variously called the Loess Hills, the Thick Loess area, the Brown Loam Bluffs, the Bluff Hills, or just the Bluffs. The area (Fig. 1) is well known to foresters and lumbermen who work in the Lower Mississippi Valley, for it is potentially one of the most productive hardwood sites in the nation.
