Oh yeah. Big time. But they do a great job in restoring it. The people who do the restoration are in the same boat as everyone else: the land was taken from them with very little choice, and they want it back. So they spare no expense, and it's actually being restored to better conditions than it was originally in. Sci-fi style terraforming, if you will. They're trying to build a natural utopia, in perfect order to be sparsely inhabited by "colonists".

If you have any say in the matter tell them to plant as many chestnuts as they can get their hands on. They have developed a strain of American Chestnut hybrids that are resistant to blight, and they are looking for places to plant them in large numbers. http://www.acf.org/

I have no say, and I'm not sure my parents do either. I don't think the people in charge of the restoration have very much say in what trees are planted, but they do have leeway in creating lakes and streams and wetlands, and some leeway in how many trees. They plant mostly pines, but with several other deciduous trees thrown in, oaks, hickory, pecans (hickory family), and an extreme few Sycamores (my personal favorite. I want a house on a hill completely surrounded by Sycamores).

I believe they have a set list of what they can plant, and a ratio they have to follow, and I'm sure they have a minimum number they have to plant per acre.

Well, if it ends up back in the family I would totally plant a forest of chestnuts. Sycamores are real nice, but the chestnut is in my opinion superior in many ways, one of which is it produces tons of food! Great forage for wildlife and it is also a seriously lucrative cash crop that requires little care.

I'll be sure to mention that. Pine is a big crop in that area, but the lumber industry there took a huge hit.
