Crow Wing County Jack Pine/White Pine Restoration


Jack pine woodlands and mixed conifer forests have been decreasing across the landscape in Crow Wing County (CWC), especially compared to their historic abundancies. The proposal is to restore (plant) and protect approximately 98 acres of jack and white pine habitat in priority areas across CWC. The expected results are increased and enhanced wildlife habitat for many species while also achieving the goal of increasing conifer forests on the landscape. This will occur within the realm of working conifer forests which have declined over the last 100 years.
