2013 Training - NRCS CIG
Similar training will be held in conjunction with a project funded by the NRCS’ Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG). Using ARRI’s Forest Reclamation Approach (FRA), this project aims to reforest a total of 12 strip-mine sites, each at least 30 acres in size, with high-value hardwoods including potentially blight-resistant American chestnuts.
At each site TACF staff and other cooperators will coordinate a condensed version of the FoReST Certification workshops that will take place in one or two sessions. In addition, training will be focused on planting and maintenance of high-value hardwoods on strip-mined sites.
