A mature bottomland hardwood forest near Laurel, Mississippi was commercially clearcut in 1958 and the development of the ensuing naturally regenerated stand was traced. With increasing age, water oak (Quercus nigra) and white oak (Quercus michauxii) assumed a dominant position at the expense of blackgum (Nyssa sylvatica var. biflora) and ironwood (Carpinus caroliniana). At age 22, 13.4, 33.6, 51.5, and 4.6 ft² of the basal area was comprised of spruce (Pinus glabra) and loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.), sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), water oak, and white oak; iron-wood and blackgum comprised 14.8 and 1.8 percent of the basal area in trees less than 4 inches in diameter.
