  • Ecoregions – Southeastern Plains Atlantic Southern Loam Plain
    These irregular plains with broad interstream areas have a mosaic of cropland, pasture, woodland, and forest. Natural vegetation was mostly longleaf pine, with smaller areas of oak-hickory-pine. On some moist sites, especially in the far south near Florida, Southern mixed forest occurred with beech, sweetgum, southern magnolia, laurel and live oaks, and various pines. The longleaf pine forests had a diversity of age classes, structure, and species in response to environmental gradients and natural disturbances. Over the past three centuries, naval stores or pine tar production, logging, open range cattle and feral hog grazing, agriculture, and fire suppression removed almost all of the longleaf pine forests. The Cretaceous or Tertiary-age sands, silts, and clays of the region contrast geologically with the older metamorphic and igneous rocks of the Piedmont (45) and Blue Ridge (66). Elevations and relief are greater than in the Southern Coastal Plain (75), but generally less than in much of the Piedmont or in the more mountainous Blue Ridge. streams in this area are relatively low-gradient and sandy-bottomed. Ecoregion 65 has similarities to defined regions in the other major land classification systems. The Southern Coastal Plain MLRA includes this ecoregion within it (USDA, SCS 1981), and it is within the Coastal Plains and Flatwoods, Lower Section of the USFS (Bailey et al., 1994; Keys et al., 1995). The ecoregion has been divided into three level IV ecoregions within South Carolina:  Sand Hills (65c), Atlantic Southern Loam Plains (65l), and Southeastern Floodplains and Low Terraces (65p).  U.S. Environmental Protect Agency.
