Land Cover of the Appalachians & Ohio River Valley


The Appalachians and Ohio River system make a diagonal swath  that occupies the greater part of the eastern United States. Sediments shed by successive generations of Appalachian uplift form a 500-mile wide belt on either side of the currently remaining mountain ridges, from south of Birmingham into New England.

Geology is reflected in more or less parallel successive bands of wetlands, pine forests, farmlands, deciduous forests, and grasslands, and in the alignment of metro areas that followed these. 

This regional map shows the full width of the range and its flanking piedmont and plateau regions, from the Atlantic Coast to the Mississippi. It includes the southern portions of the Great Lakes states, New York, and western New England; most of Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia; all of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.
