2010 Kirtland’s Warbler Habitat Creation

Year Planted: 2010

Trees Planted: 402,000
Location: Michigan

This reforestation project in the Huron Manistee National Forest is designed to plant 402,000 trees over 369 acres with the state of Michigan and the US Forest Service in order to provide habitat restoration for the Kirtlands Warbler. The Kirtlands Warbler is an endangered species song bird which requires both the particular Jack Pine specie to nest in and scattered openings of land to fulfill their habitat needs. The trees themselves must be in the range of 4-15 years old for the Kirtlands Warbler to nest in, making the effect of this project not fully seen until down the road. These specific conditions that the Kirtlands Warbler requires will be put in place to combat the ever increasing encroachment of human inhabitation on the birds habitat. The trees for this project will be planted in the spring of 2010 by local contractors.
