@steveroy Didn't the lumber industry used to replant clear cut logging land by seeding it from airplanes? I remember driving through Northern Wisconsin and you could tell areas that had been reseeded because they were all Aspen? and some pine trees a generation or two before. Very dense. I guess for the pulp paper industry.
That might work in pine forests but I can't see it in hardwood forests where you want to avoid a monoculture.
