Tool For Assessment And Treatment Of Reforested Bottomland Hardwood Stands On Wetland Reserve Easements


This document was developed by a working group of the Tristate Conservation Partnership (TCP) at the request of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. It is intended to assist the NRCS in  addressing first entry treatment decisions and support compatible use agreement administration for bottomland hardwood plantations on Wetland Reserve Easements (WRE) in the three states.

The TCP is a collaborative effort chartered by the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture  and guided by a steering committee comprised of representatives from NRCS and conservation partners in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Working groups are established through support of both the Arkansas Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV) and Louisiana/Mississippi MAV Conservation Delivery Networks to address specific priorities identified by the TCP steering committee.
