Reforestation Methods, Challenges and Solutions

Great Parks of Hamilton County manages 12,800 acres of natural areas in the southwest corner of Ohio. Recent changes in land use and forest canopy prompted reforestation and afforestation in both riparian and upland hardwood forest types. Plantings occurred between 2010 and 2015 on sites that ranged in size from 1 to 35 acres. Presentation by Tom Borgman of Great Parks of Hamilton County, Ohio.
