Bare Rock Mine Surface Planting Allegheny Chinquapins Castanea pumila

Green Forests Work – Restoring Native Forests and Creating Economic Opportunities on Surface Mines across Appalachia

Join us November 17 from 11:30AM – 1:00PM (EDT), for TACF’s next LIVE Chestnut Chat. Our special guest Michael French will discuss mineland reclamation and its role in American chestnut restoration.

This chat will provide an overview of the history of surface mining reclamation, the reforestation of surface mines, and how the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative and Green Forests Work (GFW) are implementing techniques that expedite the establishment of healthy, diverse, native forests on former surface mines. The chat will also discuss GFW’s progress, recent projects, and how the restoration of degraded lands can play a role in restoring forest types and species that have undergone declines, such as American chestnut.
