Name of Project: Brevort River Riparian Planting/White Pine Restoration
Number of Trees to be Planted: 89,000
Directly Benefits: Brevort River wildlife
American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to reforest an area in the Hiawatha National Forest. The project will cover an area along the Brevort River, which flows between Brevort Lake and the north shore of Lake Michigan. The river begins in Brevort Lake causing it to have a low flow when the lake’s water level is low. Occasional drought robs the river’s banks of vegetation.White pine and other long-life conifer species that thrive in low flows will be planted in the area. White pines also provide large woody debris in the channel which will create pools for aquatic species during low flow conditions.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
