- Peaty non-riverine swamps and pocosins subject (at least historically) to occasional intense fires; also scattered in tidal swamp forests along Pitts Creek in n. Accomack County. Rare, Coastal Plain of far se. Virginia and the Eastern Shore; still common at a few sites in the embayed region of se. Virginia, from the Great Dismal Swamp to North Landing River. Formerly more abundant, but was heavily exploited for its rot-resistant wood.
Fire exclusion has limited the regeneration of secondary stands.
