The ARRI Core Team and Science Team conducted their summer meeting and annual field tour on June 6 – 9, 2006 in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.  The tour began in State College, Pennsylvania where the Academic Team and State Core Team representatives gave short talks about their interests.  Following the presentations, the teams toured sites of American chestnut and Oak plantings and a natural succession site amended with biosolids. 

On Wednesday, the teams toured an abandoned mine land site in Bedford County, PA that is to be replanted with approximately 50,000 trees.   In the afternoon, the teams traveled to Maryland where they viewed reclamation of a bond forfeiture site and an abandoned mine land site completed in 1991 and reforested in pine trees.  Thursday, the teams traveled to West Virginia where they viewed a native Red Spruce site.
