Abstract

Most Piedmont forests, growing on land worn out by row cropping and abandoned, are low in site quality. They contribute appreciable flood runoff and sediment. Soil structure is poor and nutrient content low. Such improvement as takes place comes generally from litter fall, particularly hsrdwood leaves.
