Foresters managing land in the lower coastal plain should plan for a significant rise in the water table after a cutting even on sandy soils. Partial cuts in four pine stands on fine sandy soils caused the water table to rise from 0.3 to 1.1 feet. A water rise occurred even with a light selection cut on a Lakeland sand. The water table rise was most pronounced late in the growing season and persisted into the dormant season, usually until February.
