Description: Early in the 20th century, the forests in the South were devastated by aggressive harvesting and many millions of acres of forest land needed reforestation. Foresighted individuals began a committed effort to restore this land to a productive condition. This effort required dedication, cooperation, and leadership. A small cadre of individuals led the restoration of the Southâ€™s forests that became the basis of the Southâ€™s economy. Many of these individuals are profiled in this document.
Keywords: History of forestry research, research scientists, restoration of southern forests, significance of forestry to the South, southern pines
