DescriptionThere has been a tremendous upsurge in interest in reforestation of bottomland hardwoods. In the lower Mississippi alluvial valley, reforestation projects are occurringon a large scale on abandoned agricultural fields, often in conjunction with state or federal cost-share programs. This paper describes some of the cost share programs used to establish bottomland hardwoods, in particular oaks. The reforestation techniques of direct seeding hard mast or plantingbareroot seedlings ate discussed along with estimates of establishment costs.
