Taking Care of Mount Mitchell

Record #:
Mount Mitchell, some 40 miles north of Asheville, is the tallest peak in eastern America and its forest was over-harvested in the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries. The 1914 state legislature passed regulations to cease logging and promote a conservation plan for the mountain. Mount Mitchell's development plans 21 years later included roads, reforestation programs, and a game refuge.
