Historically, woodland loss has occurred in this region due to agricultural expansion. Trees were planted in Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Missouri. The trees planted included Northern red oak, white oak, pin oak, sycamore, persimmon and Eastern cottonwood. Additional support for this project was provided by American Electric Power and Marathon Oil.
