Forested Swamp

The term “forested swamp” usually refers to a wetlands system dominated by trees or other woody vegetation. A wide variety of such systems are found throughout the world. In temperate regions forested swamps can be dominated by trees that tolerate permanent to semipermanent flooding such as the bald cypress or swamp tupelo in the southern United States or the alder or maple in more temperate climes.
