Restoring Historic Vegetation at Historic Lawrenceville, North Carolina: Comprehensive Management Plan Prepared for the Land Trust for Central N.C.

By T.J. Mascia

Abstract

The following is a comprehensive study and management plan for integrated ecological restoration and archeological preservation on the Land Trust for North Carolina’s (LTCNC’s) historically significant Lawrenceville property in Montgomery County, North Carolina. Archeological and vegetative surveys were conducted over a two year period to establish baseline inventories for the plan’s dual management goals. Two specific restoration targets – Oak-Hickory-Shortleaf Pine Woodland/Savanna and Uhwarrie/Piedmont Longleaf Pine Forest – were selected based on historical literature and regional pre-settlement vegetation studies. Management recommendations focus on invasive species control and target-specific restoration while also considering LTCNC’s obligation to preserve Lawrenceville’s archeology. By implementing this plan, LTCNC can create and maintain a unique showcase of Montgomery County’s cultural and natural history
