The Whatcom Land Trust acquired a 100-acre parcel of land that had been clearcut harvested and not replaced. A major salmon spawning stream runs through the property and was in need of restoration. In 2000, 19,200 Douglas fir trees were planted on 45 acres on this site and 800 Douglas fir were planted on another site. This project will restore critical sensitive salmon habitat, stop large-scale erosion and sedimentation and control invasive plants. Crown Pacific donated all of the trees.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
