    Description

    The Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA) is a method for reclaiming coal-mined land to forested postmining land uses under the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA) (Chapter 2, this volume). Step 4 of the FRA is to plant native trees for commercial timber value, wildlife habitat, soil stability, watershed protection, and other environmental benefits. This Forest Reclamation Advisory provides guidance for selecting native tree species to plant on mine sites that are reclaimed by using the FRA in the Appalachian region.
