Name of Project:Upper St. Joes Watershed Restoration

Location: Idaho Panhandle National Forest, ID

Number of Trees Planted: 10,000

Idaho Panhandle National Forest, known for its evergreen mountains and vast shores of large water, is experiencing a decimation of its whitebark pine trees due to blister rust and mountain pine beetles. This project, a collaboration of American Forests and the U.S. Forest Service, will restore the watershed in the Heller Cascade area. The project will plant 10,000 whitebark pine seedlings across 60 acres, where these trees previously flourished. This planting will not only help restore an important tree species, but will also provide many animals with a valuable food source, such as Clark’s nutcrackers and other birds, grizzly bears and squirrels.
