||Kopper Glo Fuel, Inc. hosted the Arbor Day 2011 event at its Tackett Creek Surface Mine #2 in Claiborne County, Tennessee. Students at Clairfield and White Oak Elementary Schools established indoor American chestnut nurseries in their classrooms in early 2011 and then transplanted them at the planting event in April. In addition to their potted American chestnut seedlings, students also planted bare-root seedlings of various species provided by Kopper Glo Fuel. Tennessee Mining Association and Geo/Environmental Associates, Inc. provided several hundred American chestnut bare-root seedlings for planting.|
|The rains held off and about 50 students from
White Oak and Clairfield Schools joined
volunteers from Kopper Glo Fuel, the Office of Surface Mining,
Mining Association, Anderson County's The LEARN Center Alternative School, and
Associates, Inc. to get several hundred trees into the ground.
Afterwards, the planters ate lunch at the site.
OSM volunteers included: Tom Haywood, Chris Miller, Will Debord, Tim Rudder and Vic Davis
