DescriptionRecent forest inventories of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, included sampled for hydric soils, and wetland hydrology. Forest samples that met all 3 of these criteria were classified as forested wetland.This study characterizes wetland forests by extent, owner, age, forest type, physiography, volume, growth, and removals, and evaluates its contribution to the timer buspply. Wetland stands comprise 8.1 million ac. or 17% of the forests in the 3 states.They are over 90% privetely owned, they vary widely by type and physiography, and they contribute 21% of all removals. Classification of wetland area based simply on broad management class and physiology will result in inaccurate estimates.
