Bottomland hardwood forests are seasonally flooded and are commonly known as swamps. These areas once covered great regions of the South but are now a patchwork system of fragmented lands.Great swamps had many things that attracted early visitors. Game & fish included crawfish, fist, beaver, ducks, alligators and many more. The lumber was one of the great resources of this country. Swamps had two advantages for early loggers; They were made up of valuable hardwoods, especially rot resistant cypress, and waterways made it easy to transport logs. Most swamps were clear-cut by the early 1900's.Some of the land was converted into farmland and is still used to raise sugar cane, soybeans and other crops. The remaining swamp is a shadow of what it once was, but it can become a land of great trees once again. Planting efforts by citizens and government agencies have helped speed up the recovery of the swamp.
