Project Overview
Lake County Forestry is seeking $81,518 grant dollars to assist in the restoration of 220 off-site aspen acres, divided into five stands, to a mature mixed hardwood and conifer forest. This grant has the same goal as a previous grant Lake County was awarded. This grant will continue the successes and create a larger area of beneficial habitat. A mixture of spruce, pine and tamarack will be planted, protected and released in this area with a goal of retaining as much hardwood as possible. This grant will fund tree planting site preparation, tree seedlings, seedling planting, seedling protection, and seedling release. The resulting stands of trees will include a mixture of trees that benefits many wildlife species and restores a habitat type once fairly common in the North Shore area.
