DescriptionTrees for reclamation can mean many things to different people. Understandably, the primary thrust of this symposium is the use of trees in the reclamation of lands formerly and currently mined for coal. This is a worthy goal, one that the Southeastern Area, State and Private Forestry, earnestly supports. My discussion today, however, will not focus specifically on the reclamation of coal (other minerals) mined lands, but will include them as a part of the potential forest land base in need of reclamation which can contribute to the nation's growing appetite for wood fiber.
