Depending on the scenario used to generate the forecast, the report’s authors predict a loss of from to 6 million acres of forest between and This is as much as 21 percent of all current Piedmont forests.

Urbanization is the key driver behind this expected loss. The wettest swamps of the northern Coastal Plain are usually co-dominated by green ash and red maple (Acer rubrum), with large clones of hydrophytic forbs such as lizard's-tail (Saururus cernuus) in the herb layers of swamp forests contain many species well adapted to fluctuating water levels and often have distinctly seasonal aspects related to inundation and draw-down cycles.

The Virginia Department of Forestry carries out forestry activities on state-owned lands, manages State Forests, enforces forestry laws, protects forests from fire and forest pests, performs statewide forest resource planning and forestry outreach education in forest stewardship, urban and community forestry and forest industry economic development, and is responsible for state land acquisition.
