Stones Creek Game Land

Year Planted: 2009

Trees Planted: 53,750
Location: North Carolina

In the Stones Creek Game Land the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is trying to reestablish the longleaf pine savannah. The project area was originally a longleaf pine ecosystem, but prior to NCWRC ownership it was replaced by slash and loblolly pine plantations and then was clearcut for residential development. Phase 3 of this multi-phase project will plant 63,500 containerized longleaf pine seedlings in the fall of 2009. This project will enhance water quality of the New River watershed, create wildlife habitat for the red-cockaded woodpecker, game, and non-game wildlife and provide public recreation opportunities.
