Name of Project: Compartment 23 Jack Pine Planting
Location: Hiawatha National Forest, MI
Number of Trees Planted: 59,000
American Forests is collaborating with the U.S. Forest Service to restore thousands of Jack pine trees that have been defoliated by the Jack pine budworm. In order to reforest a fully stocked Jack pine stand, this project plans to plant 59,000 seedlings across 85 acres of Hiawatha National Forest, located in Northern Michigan. Once restored, this project will benefit wildlife by maintaining forest cover and habitat diversity for a number of different species, including the American marten, gray wolf and pileated woodpecker.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
