    Description

    Hardwood forests are some of the most productive timber and wildlife habitat sites in the United States. Because of their tremendous agricultural potential, most hardwood forests have been cleared, especially in the lower Mississippi River Valley. Many of these soils are now classified as highly erodible or subject to periodic flooding. The Conservation Reserve Program, initiated in 1985 to return delicate soils to less demanding uses, includes the option of putting cleared land back into forests. This publication offers landowners guidelines for planting and direct-seeding procedures that they can use in hardwood reforestation.
