Reforestation, or the replanting of trees, is essential to the future of our forests.  Reforestation can be accomplished through direct seeding, mechanical planting, or hand planting of select species.  There are several objectives landowners have when implementing reforestation practices:

Objective Description
Habitat Enhancement Utilizing low density plantings of various tree species to improve the habitat of selected flora and fauna creating a vegetative mosaic that can be continually managed.
Hunting Cover and Edge Creation Improve hunting through the creation of edges and strategically placed sightlines while simultaneously providing cover. 
Natural Buffer Creation Create audio/visual buffers through the use of natural vegetation to reduce the affect of adjacent impacts. 
Reclamation Planting of trees in areas that have been affected by the removal of other resources, such as mining.
Restoration Planting of trees to mimic what would naturally/historically occur on a site. 
Timber/Pine Straw Production Planting of pine trees typically at a rate of 726 to 851 trees per acre with the objective of raking pine straw and harvesting timber in the future.
Wetland Enhancement/Creation Planting of wetland tree species to enhance or create a wetland.  Wetland trees are typically planted at a rate of 250 trees per acre.
Wildlife Enhancement Create low density plantings of various tree species to improve the habitat of selected fauna. 

FES is able to plant bare–root and tubeling size trees, but also specializes in offering services to plant larger gallon material trees up to 65 gallons.  Whether for mitigation or the need of an immediate buffer, FES is able to plant larger tree material for landowners with specific needs.
