Analysis of 617 trees representing 29 species showed that establishing shade on an eastern Kentucky campground by transplanting trees 1 to 4 inches d.b.h. and 15 to 25 feet in height was successful (overall survival 92 percent) and relatively inexpensive ($9.57 per tree). The 11 best performing species have been previously ranked tolerant to recreational use. Optimal size for transplanting was 1.5 inches d.b.h. and 16 feet in height.
