The Congaree River floodplain forest, part of which has been referred to as the only remaining virgin bottomland forest in the Southeast, harbors twenty-six State record-sized trees. Although a complete floristic study of the area is yet to be done, five county records, three of which are rare in the Carolinas (Radford, et al., 1968), have been found in the Beidler Tract of the floodplain.
