DOCUMENT INFO
Description: According to the Eastern Native Tree Society, based on direct tape drop or laser measurements by Will Blozan and Jess and Doug Riddle, Congaree boasts the tallest known specimens of 15 species! [...] in 1969, when high timber prices suddenly made logging the swamp economically feasible, Hampton's idea was taken up by a grass-roots campaign that soon resulted in the designation of Congaree Swamp as a National Natural Landmark, hi 1976 it became protected public land as the Congaree Swamp National Monument. [...] the Congaree has been designated as an International Biosphere Reserve (1983), a Globally Important Bird Area (2002), and our second newest national park (2003).
