Abstract : The objective of the Lake George Bottomland Hardwood Wildlife and Wetland Restoration Project is to restore functioning bottomland hardwood wetland habitat by reforesting 3,600 ha of agricultural fields located in the Mississippi Delta. The Lake George Project provided an opportunity to conduct applied research on several bottomland hardwood reforestation topics. University and Federal agency scientists conducted studies on matching tree species to the site, selecting plant stock type, selecting when to plant, and monitoring early habitat development following planting.
