    Description

    The vast harvest of the native forests of the South in the 19th and early 20th centuries created a great need for reforestation and silvicultural knowledge. An emphasis on forestry research that changed the face of the South began with the establishment of the Southern and Appalachian Forest Experiment Stations in 1921. Working under primitive conditions, early researchers provided the information that was used to restore the southern forests. A key to this success was the interaction and cooperation of workers in universities, State service, Federal service, and forest industry.
