DescriptionForest restoration is the process of transforming a damaged or unhealthy forest into a healthy one. After the southern pine beetle (SPB) has damaged a forest, it is sometimes, if not most times, necessary to restore that forest. It is important to know the restoration goals, conditions prior to SPB, current conditions, and potential future conditions of the forest before beginning a restoration project. Restoration projects have political and social implications that also cannot be overlooked. The practical methods and concerns in conducting restoration will vary by location. Only within the proper conceptual framework can restoration following southern pine beetle outbreaks be successful.
