    Description

    Early in the 20th century, the forests of the South were decimated by aggressive harvesting, resulting in millions of acres of forest land in need of reforestation. Foresighted individuals committed efforts to restore this harvested land to a productive condition. The effort required dedication, cooperation, and leadership. The efforts of this small cadre of individuals resulted in successful restoration of the South’s forests and these new forests became the basis of the South’s economy.
