  1. 0 Votes

    Approximately 15% of original old-growth forests remain in the United States. In the lower 48 states that number is as low as 5%. This number is difficult to estimate and is somewhat controversial. For example, 95% of native plant life in the lower Rio Grande Delta of Texas has been replaced by farmland, reservoirs, cities, and towns. Roughly 66% of bottomland hardwood forest has been logged or replaced.
