    Description

    During the latter part of the 19th century, European descendents migrated to the Ozarks seeking employment with large pine-producing sawmills. Within a 30-year period, most of the pine resources across six million acres had been exploited and were largely replaced by oak-hickory forests. The era ended with residents struggling with economic challenges and limited natural resources. Differing values and management philosophies toward the forest, and attempts to restore pine communities by creating a system of forest management and recovery in Missouri, have been a legacy of conflict among people.
