The Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA) is a method for reclaiming coal-mined land to forest under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA). The FRA is based on knowledge gained from both scientific research and experience (Photo 1).File Size: KB.

To help practitioners implement the 5 steps of the FRA and achieve other restoration goals (such as wildlife enhancement), 13 Forest Reclamation Advisories have been written since and others are by: 5.

    Sullivan et al. () examined the financial viability of reforesting reclaimed surface mined lands by estimating the land expectation value from reforestation and carbon offset payments. Reforestation is a common post-mine land use option utilized by mining companies for reclamation. Forests and forested edge are important to the Indiana bat for both foraging and roosting. Additionally, roost suitable tree species are often planted in accordance with a permit specific species protection plan.

Purpose. Much of the land being surface mined for coal, particularly in the eastern United States, was woodland or forestland prior to being mined. However, past regulatory emphasis under SMCRA has been on achieving land stability which has resulted in smoothly graded, compacted mine soils and the establishment of aggressive vegetative ground covers to control erosion.

Scientists and practitioners developed a set of science-based best management practices for mine reforestation called the Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA). Assessment, Restoration and Reclamation of Mining Influenced Soils covers processes operating in the environment as a result of mining activity, including the whole spectra of negative effects of anthropopressure and the environment, from changes in soil chemistry, changes in soil physical properties, geomechanical disturbances, and mine water discharges.

Traditional practices are very expensive ($/acre) for reclaiming abandoned mined land. Reforestation is suggested as a cost effective and low maintenance alternative ($/acre) for reclaiming strip mines not eligible for traditional reclamation in Ohio. The success of the reforestation programme on sites of acres is attributed to the use of tree seedlings inoculated with the Author: C.

The alternative uses considered are in land reclamation, forestry, compost and soil production, landfill, incineration, and energy and resource recovery.

Plant species helps in land reclamation by allowing plant succession on mine spoils and exert catalytic effects over the degraded areas by changing underlying microclimatic conditions. The establishment of biological systems that cycle the soil nutrients is critical to the development of stable ecosystems on mined.

When native forest re-establishment is the post-mining land use and reclamation goal, the guidelines reviewed in Advisory No. 8 can aid mine operators in ensuring that mine soils, applied at a minimum of 4 feet in thickness, will restore land capability and support forest growth and diversity at pre-mining levels.

The Forestry Reclamation Approach uses uncompacted, mounded spoils to reforest mined-land and has been successful in hardwood forests in the Appalachian region. A surface coalmine reclamation site in the Pacific Northwest was used to compare the site’s standard reclamation approach (Reference) with a modified version of the Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA) along with a modified FRA Author: Colton Miller, Grace King, Yurong Liu, Robert Harrison, Eric Turnblom, Darlene Zabowski.
