Hardwood Swamps

Hardwood swamps, more common in the north half of the state, are most commonly found occupying the lowlands around rivers. A high diversity of trees characterizes these swamps. Water tupelos with some bald cypress are the dominant trees closest to the open water of the river. Moving inland and upland from there are water hickory, green ash and swamp laurel oak, sweet gum, hackberry and water oak. The understory consists of titi, black titi, possum haw, yaupon, Virginia willow, red chokecherry, and a number of other species.
