Name of Project: Lumpson Creek Planting-White Pine Restoration

Number of Trees to be Planted: 21,000

Directly Benefits: Lumpson Creek wildlife

Location: Michigan

Year: 2011

Goals

  • Restore 60 acres of riparian forest
  • Create aquatic habitat area
  • Maintain areas used for recreation

 

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to reforest parts of the Hiawatha National Forest. This project will enhance the ecosystem health of an area along the Lumpson Creek. This waterway flows into the Pine River, an area known for its fishing and hunting areas, scenic beauty, easy-to-navigate waters, camping, and hiking. Because of these qualities, the river system is experiencing increased pressure from recreational users and development interests.

This project aims to counteract such pressures. Reforesting this area will benefit the river system by providing organic material, such as leaves and sticks, to form pools during low flows and create habitat for aquatic species.
