Pine and Waiska Watersheds Headwater Riparian Conifer Planting

Year Planted: 2009
Trees Planted: 21,000
Location: Michigan

The Hiawatha National Forest will hand-plant 15,000 long lived conifers within 500 feet of streams including West Branch Waiska River at the mouth and above White Creek. The planting will help counter the effect of historic logging, help return the zone to pre-settlement vegetation and enhance cold-water fisheries habitat.


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