Itasca County White Cedar Planting


Minnesota Deer Hunters Association - Itasca County Chapter along with MN DNR and Itasca County would utilize the Minnesota Conservation Corps of MN to create future winter cover for wildlife in Itasca County. This proposal will entail the planting of White Cedar seedlings in recently clear cut conifer stands in two locations of Itasca County. The seedlings will be planted on two sites for a total of 10 acres with approximately 200 seedlings per acre and then be caged for protection from browse. It is important to plant these seedlings prior to any establishment of competing tree and shrub species on these clear cut areas. Naturally regenerating White Cedar stands are becoming increasingly rare in the northern forest.
