Wye Mountain, Arkansas
“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir
The Gifted Tree’s planting project is in Wye Mountain, Arkansas and the areas surrounding Lake Maumelle in central Arkansas. As in many areas of the United States, urbanization is threatening the quality of drinking water for large populations and that is no different in central Arkansas
The overall goal of the project is to improve drinking water quality by reforesting areas that were clearcut in the past by timber companies. This reforestation effort will help protect the Lake Maumelle watershed, the largest supplier of water in the state
Tree root systems play an amazing filtering role in the soil and these new plantings of Shortleaf Pine will help reduce the levels of pollutants that exist in the lake. The reforestation effort will also aid in erosion control, flood mitigation and storm water management, and the native shortleaf pine trees will increase resiliency to climate change.
