Name of Project: Brevort River Riparian Planting/White Pine Restoration

Number of Trees to be Planted: 89,000

Directly Benefits: Brevort River wildlife

Location: Michigan

Year: 2011

Goals

  • Reforest 75 acres of riparian forest
  • Create aquatic wildlife habitat

 

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to reforest an area in the Hiawatha National Forest. The project will cover an area along the Brevort River, which flows between Brevort Lake and the north shore of Lake Michigan. The river begins in Brevort Lake causing it to have a low flow when the lake’s water level is low. Occasional drought robs the river’s banks of vegetation.

White pine and other long-life conifer species that thrive in low flows will be planted in the area.  White pines also provide large woody debris in the channel which will create pools for aquatic species during low flow conditions.
