Black Ant Reforestation, Lewis & Clark National Forest

Year Planted: 2005

Trees Planted: 30,000
Location: Montana

The Lost Fork Fire started on September 3, 2001 and burned about 2,300 acres of mature forest. The area provides summer range for a variety of wildlife including mule deer, elk, blue grouse and potential habitat for lynx. Several burn areas are not regenerating due to the severity of the fire and the lack of seed source. In 2005, the Forest Service planted 30,000 Lodgepole pine to reforest 85 acres. The planting area is at the headwaters of the North Fork of Musselshell River, a water quality limited stream. Both watershed conditions and wildlife will benefit from the project and the area will experience a faster recovery than if no planting occurred. Additionally, this area is a popular recreational site for biking, camping, and hunting.
