Restoring Longleaf Pine and American Chestnut in Georgia

Dr. Martin Cipollini’s lecture will focus on the history, rationale, and early results of restoration efforts directed towards Longleaf pine and American chestnut in Georgia. As much of this work has taken place on Berry's campus, he will highlight the roles of Berry College and citizen-scientists. Students will be exposed to the success of these projects at Berry and how the work contributes to regional and national rehabilitation efforts. Through management techniques such as controlling invasive species, breeding blight-resistant plants, and planting orchards across campus, these projects are helping restore threatened species to the wild.
