Ames Forester


The Gladwin Forest Service Nursery is located at Gladwin, West Virginia, on the Monongahela National Forest. It was established some seven years ago primarily to supply planting stock for the southern Appalachian forests, where the need for reforestation of the high spruce flats has been recognized for some time past. On the Monongahela forest in particular there are thousands of acres of this high spruce flat type where, reproduction of any kind is almost totally lacking. Most of these areas are the result of destructive logging operations followed by repeated fires. Artificial reforestation is the only hope for such areas.
