    Some of the finest forest land in the country is in the batture of the Mississippi River - the area between the levees and the river. Many of these sites once bore nearly pure stands of cottonwood, and cottonwood probably is the most valuable timber crop that could be grown on them today. After the old-growth was harvested, though, the sites were taken over largely by trees of inferior species and form.
