A Half Century of Reforestation in the Tennessee Valley
Over a million and a half acres of land in the Tennessee Valley needed reclaiming in 1933. Much of it was open land in various stages of erosion, but the estimate also included thousands of acres of under-stocked woodland. Since then, more than 246 million forest tree seedlings have been planted. Reported here is the performance of black locust, yellow-poplar, and shortleaf, loblolly, Virginia, and white pines. These six species represent 94 percent of 170 million trees planted through 1946. Also reported are the reforestation accomplishments of all agencies since 1890.
