DescriptionSavannahs, or "upland grasssedge bogs," occur extensively in the lower Atlantic Coastal Plain (7). They are found on poorly drained upland depressions and are usually dominated by grasses and sedges, but pines-longleaf (Pinus palustris Mill.), pond (P. serotina Michx.), slash (P. elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii), and loblolly (P. taeda L.)-are often represented as scattered trees or in open stands. Savannahs are problem areas as prospective planting sites because of their naturally low productivity, the high risk of flooding during wet seasons, and the high fire hazard during dry seasons.
