Piedmont PicturePiedmont

Elevations in the piedmont range from 180 feet in the southeast to 1380 feet in the northwest. Most of the piedmont consists of well-rounded hills and rolling ridges. The forests of piedmont North Carolina are primarily hardwood with a variety of oak and hickory. On drier, recently disturbed sites, conifer forests dominated by loblolly pine occur.
