Natchitoches Parish #2

Year Planted: 2001

Trees Planted: 221,100
Location: Louisiana

This project is a continuation of Natchitoches Parish #1. In this phase of the project American Forests planted 221,100 trees in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Louisiana Office of Forestry, Natchitoches Soil and Water Conservation District, Louisiana Office of Soil and Water Conservation, Louisiana Wildlife Federation, Louisiana Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, and Northwestern State University. The goal of reforesting the land was to create a more natural habitat for the local wildlife and to improve the water quality. Local wildlife that will benefit includes deer, turkey, quail, rabbits, squirrels, and doves. Conservation methods besides reforestation will also be implemented at the site. Once the initial components of the conservation plan are complete, the site will be used on a limited basis for outdoor classroom activities and for outdoor recreation for handicapped citizens.
