St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge III

Year Planted: 2002
Trees Planted: 20,000
Location: Florida

The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge completed planting of an additional 20,000 longleaf pine seedlings in 2002, following a previous two-year project on the site in cooperation with Global ReLeaf. The aim is to study the effectiveness of various longleaf restoration approaches (no-cut, thinning, group selection, and clearcutting) and site-prep techniques (burning, herbicide, and mowing/chopping). The findings will also be useful throughout the Southeast, where public and private land managers are struggling to restore the valuable and once widespread longleaf pine ecosystem using the most cost effective and least destructive site prep methods available. The Refuge also assisted Shadeville Elementary School in planting a 5-acre natural area, with the help of student volunteers.
