Vegetation analysis in ten central Florida cypress (Taxodium distichum) swamps was undertaken to determine the response of woody species composition to clearcutting. Line transects through swamps that had been harvested by clear-cutting within the last 5 years demonstrated that all but one of these swamps are likely to recover their original species composition and a normal stem density. Cypress was the major tree species in all swamps examined except one that had been severely burned by a wildfire. Both natural seedlings and vegetative propagation are important avenues of cypress reproduction following clearcutting. South. J. Appl. For. 13(3):123-126.
