2004 Spruce Decline Project

Year Planted: 2007
Trees Planted: 71,100
Location: Wisconsin

On the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, 71,100 Jack pine were planted to replace the white spruce forest that was lost due to insect, disease and weather-related problems. The short-needled conifer will improve the forest health and provide food and nesting cover for spruce grouse after the birds lost their white spruce forest habitat.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
